So we’ve made compound butters on this little blog before, so it’s not new to you!

While this butter makes a great gift when wrapped with a cute ribbon and a hand lettered note.   You should also make yourself some extra because it is great on so many things, like these;

  • Popcorn, with the bacon salt! mmmm
  • Over some fresh grilled fish
  • Stirred into some warm pasta
  • Smeared on some bread for a fabulous garlic bread
  • Slathered on bread before you make your grilled cheese
  • On top of a great steak

I hate calling this a recipe because it’s so dang easy, but I’ll give you one anyways.  Here’s the gist

Day 6- Flavored Butters
  • 1 stick of butter- room temp
  • zest of one lemon
  • 10-12 roasted garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  1. If you have fresh garlic (not pre-roasted) peel cloves and place them an oven safe dish with a bit of olive oil and roast in a 305* oven for 20-30 minutes until golden brown
  2. In a food processor combine ingredients and process until mostly smooth, I like to leave little chunks of the garlic.

See you tomorrow!  Any guesses on what’s next?! 😉
