Burgundy Butter

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

Recipe name of unknown origin...Where's the burgundy? Burgundy in France? Serve spread with burgundy wine? Am I close? Recipe found on the back package of shallots compliments of Christopher Ranch in Gilroy, California-"Garlic Capital of the World"! Try this spread on French bread! Dee-lite-ful! Try on grilled seafood, poultry, steamed vegetables, in basting sauces, slathered on Oregon slugs, too.

You are right this is from Burgundy in France and is especially used there to stuff escargots (snails) or spread on mussels in their shells before grilling. Really delicious
