Garlic Herb Butter
Nothing extra is really necessary for dressing up butter but I do love this recipe. If you have leftovers it is amazing as the finishing touch to a steak.
Butter is still the star here so find a good one! I like to use Kerrygold or Amish butter for this recipe. Sometimes I don’t have unsalted butter and I just use salted butter and a quarter of the salt listed below. A note on room temperature-make sure the butter is truly soft before you try this. It makes a huge difference!
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
1 tsp salt
1 T flat leaf parsley, minced
1 T fresh basil, minced
1/2 T fresh lemon juice
1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature
Mix all ingredients together in a small
Form a log shape with the softened
butter on a piece of cling wrap/
parchment/ wax paper and refrigerate.
When ready to serve the butter can be
sliced into discs.
