Absolutely great on the green beans that I made the other day, & I've also enjoyed it with broccoli & cauliflower as well as pasta!! This was definitely something out of the ordinary for us & I think I'll be keeping this recipe around! Many thanks! [Tagged & made in 1-2-3 Hits tag]
This was wonderful on cooked carrots. First time I've used a savory flavored butter. Didn't know what I was missing! I did scale this down to 1/4 cup. Will definitely make the whole recipe next time and freeze it as another reviewer did. Made for the winner of 1~2~3 Hits It's Not Easy Being Green ~ March 2010.
I love flavored butters and this one did not disappoint! It was delicious over a grilled New York strip steak! I halved the recipe and it made plenty. I froze the leftover butter for future use. I can't wait to try it on some asparagus! Thanks for sharing this.
