Wow! This is amazing. I intended to cut the recipe in half, cutting the butter in half. Then I ended up using a single large garlic clove because I love garlic bread, and ended up upping the olives and parsley a bit too. Threw everything into a mini-chopper and pulsed it until the olives were well chopped. OMG...SO good. Followed the recipe of letting it sit room temp for a few hours before using it to make some garlic bread. I started the bread on the grill but since it wasn't all melted when the steak was done, I finished it up under the oven broiler for a minute or so. This is company worthy butter. Would also be great on a steak or pasta. Can't wait to try it that way too.

Directions See How It's Made
- In a medium-size bowl, whip 1/2 cup unsalted butter (room temperature) until fluffy.
- Combine the softened butter and other ingredients together until they are completely blended.
- For the flavor to better penetrate the butter, allow it to stand at cool room temperature for a few hours before refrigerating.
- Compound butters may be stored in freezer, tightly wrapped. Use a sharp knife dipped in hot water for cutting the frozen butter.
