Butter, my love. One of the best condiments on its own is also one of the easiest ways to elevate any meal or occasion. Make one of my simple flavored butters, also known as compound butter, today!
Creating flavored butter can add to the sophistication of any meal. Skip the plain old butter and opt for flavored butter!
Make your own butter super fast in the blender (trust me, it is SO good!). From there get fancy with things and make some fabulous flavors! Pair with bread, put on a baked potato, top a steak, melt on sautéed veggies or even slather onto a sandwich.
Use a cookie dough scoop to make butter balls or a pastry bag with fancy tips and pipe it out into stars or other shapes. Place on bread plates before your meal and your guests will be super surprised!
