How to Make Compound Herb Butter

My husband made me and our son a beautiful feast for Mother’s Day today! Everything looked and tasted so delicious and fresh. It was the perfect Sunday meal to end our Mother’s Day together. We had a grilled corn salad, I’ll tell you more about that another day, sautΓ©ed mushrooms, mashed potatoes with cream and rib eye steaks on the grill. I thought the rib eye steaks needed a special touch tonight so I whipped up, literally, a quick compound herb butter.

I used to think that creating compound butter from scratch was for the intermediate cook. I was so wrong! It couldn’t be easier and the combinations are limitless. You could make a sweet berry butter for french toast or do a savory herb butter for garlic bread or, like I did, steaks. You could even experiment with spices, maybe a curry or chili butter. Whatever ingredients you choose you won’t be disappointed!

Instructions:

First set your butter out and let it come to room temperature. Mix the butter and herbs together with a stand or hand-held mixer until combined. It will smell amazing!

Once combined turn the butter mixture out onto a piece of plastic wrap.

Roll the butter into a log and shape with your hands. Secure at the ends.

Chill in the refrigerator for at least a half and hour.

Slice and serve.
