Just 6 Ingredients
That’s all it takes for this Herb Butter. Start with softened salted butter and cream the heck out of it. Use a mixer or food processor. This assures that there aren’t any lumps in the finished product.
The next step is finely chopping the ingredients. That ‘s why I use a garlic press. It presses through that clove, easily dividing it into oh-so little bits of pieces that get distributed throughout the butter.
Grating the onion does the same, but don’t forget to add the onion juice it produces. There’s lots of flavor in there!
Now, chop, chop, chop that parsley. You want little specs throughout your spread making it flavorful and attractive. You’re gonna like it that way!
I like the flavors of Cavender’s All-Purpose Greek Seasoning blend with lots of black pepper in this butter. That pepper really accents the taste of a great steak.
Shape or Tub The Herb Butter
It’s time to work on your presentation. You can spoon it into a tub and cover it to store in the refrigerator. Or, mold it into a log or a small Silicone Baking Mold like these cute little stars. Then pop them in the freezer for extra firmness when slicing or unmolding.
Your kids will enjoy those little molded pats on their plate.
The butter stores well in the freezer for a couple of months in a ziplock bag in whichever form you choose. Or, keep it in the refrigerator for up to a few weeks for easy access.
Now, how many ways can you eat this Herb Butter? Well, let me see!
- Place a pat on a grilled steak or pork chop.
- Slather it over sliced French bread and brown it in the oven.
- Add some to veggies, like peas before or after they are cooked.
- How about in these Butter Salted Roasted Pecans?
- Top a hot baked potato with some.
- Spread the butter all over grilled corn on the cob.
- Stuff chicken breasts under the skin into the meat before grilling or roasting.
- Use some in this Cheesy Greek Bread.
- Butter both sides of a grilled cheese sandwich before cooking.
- Melt a few tablespoons and pour it over fresh-popped corn.
