Sun Dried Tomato Butter

 

Sun Dried Tomato Butter is one of my favorite compound butters. I’ll tell you why in a moment, but first let’s get something out of the way. My name is Jessica and I am obsessed with butter. Like seriously obsessed. I need it like I need salt (my other obsession.)

I love all types of butter, I don’t discriminate. Although I do cherish a lovely well-baked bread, often bread is just a socially acceptable way for me to get butter into my mouth.

Some have even gone as far as to say I use too much butter! Ha! As if that is a thing. Wrong!

While there is nothing more beautiful than freshly whipped, homemade butter, sometimes I like to take it up a few notches and make flavored compound butters, of which Sun Dried Tomato Butter is one of my fan favorites!

Sun Dried Tomato Butter combines, you guessed it, tart sun dried tomatoes with roasted garlic and fresh parsley. You can whip up a batch right before your meal or even make it days ahead of time and really allow the flavors to marinate and infuse.

I try to get my sun dried tomatoes chopped up into little bits so every bite has some bite. Paired with roasted garlic and parsley, you are in for a treat!

While I like to make my own butter (hop on over to see how easy it is) you can also take a shortcut and use store bought. Just do me a favor and don’t buy the cheap stuff. Butters are not created equal and cheap butter is mostly water and hydrogenated oil, not actual cream.

Sun Dried Tomato Butter is the perfect addition to any meal, Italian or not. Spread onto bread and broil for a zesty garlic bread. Throw on a baked potato. Even spread onto a grilled cheese sandwich, turkey sub or hamburger.

The options for this delicious flavored butter are endless! You can even use it as compound butter for a steak!

Tools for making Sun Dried Tomato Butter:

Mini Food Processor– I use this thing daily! It is by far my most used kitchen appliance, it is small and I throw all the parts into the dishwasher, well except the base and cord, of course!

Butter Dish– There is nothing to make your glorious butter look better than a beautiful butter dish!

Here are even more recipes that use sun dried tomatoes!

OH!!!!!

I will go with you to BA (butter anonymous) if you like…..actually scratch that I love butter and don’t want to give it up.

I am a massive fan of compound butters, I think my favourite is a red wine and shallot one, but this sundried tomato butter looks and sounds delicious. Like Italy packed into one tiny pat of butter. Perfect for grilled chicken or pork. YUM!!!

I will be making a roll of this soon.

Have you tried freezing it? I often freeze my compound butters as we don’t always get through them, but I have never frozen sundried tomatoes.

    Hi Claire, I do freeze them! I make them into smaller batches and make compound butter sampler platters at dinner parties. I’m glad I have a BA friend 🙂
