My favorite way to serve this spread is to smear it on lightly toasted bakery-fresh sourdough bread, however, any bread would be delightful. I have not tried using in place of a typical garlic bread spread, but I bet it would be fantastic. I also have not tried it with other herbs, but there's a lot of room for creativity here. All measurements are approximations, and are always adjusted for taste and consistency. This simply made concoction will have everyone thinking you are a culinary genius!

This is another recipe that graced our appetizer table. We doubled the garlic (we have some "serious" garlic lovers here. A wonderful butter that we are going to make again to put on vegetables. A real winner, Sitka Sound.

This is one of those recipes I don`t have to make to rate because of my own recipe I have very close to this check out the picture at Roasted Garlic, Herb Butter #88873. I must say this is just great. This is great on veggies to fish, chicken, steak. Not just bread!
