DIRECTIONS

  • Place all the herbs, garlic, pepper, and butter in a small mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon until slightly fluffy. (or, you can do the mixing with a mixer or food processor).
  • Place a 12" square piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper on your work surface and mound the flavored butter in the center.
  • Roll herb butter into cylinder shape within plastic, twisting the ends to compress the butter.
  • Chill the butter in the refrigerator or freeze until firm.
  • USE IN VEGETABLES: A pat of this butter in steamed vegetables really perks up the flavor! Try adding to corn, rice, beans… let your imagination run wild!
  • USE ON GRILLED MEATS: Add pats of herb butter on top of just-off-the-grill steaks. Let steaks “rest” for 5 minutes before serving.
  • USE TO MAKE GARLIC BREAD: Spread softened herb butter onto 1” slices of Italian bread. Shake on some parmesan cheese, then sprinkle with shredded mozzarella and broil until golden brown.
