How To Make Herb Butter:
To make Herb Butter, simply blend salted butter (at room temperature), fresh spices like parsley, thyme, and rosemary, ground black pepper, and if you want, a little lemon zest.
Let the mixture sit for a couple hours so all the spices can infuse the butter, and you’ll have a gourmet spread that you’ll want to put on just about everything!
If you love garlic, add ½ teaspoon of garlic powder to turn this recipe into Garlic Herb Butter, a delectable spread that can also be used as a hack when you’re making homemade garlic bread!
Once you start using this homemade Herb Butter instead of regular butter, you’ll find a lot of tasty ways to incorporate it into your food.
For instance, mix a couple tablespoons into noodles and top them with fresh parmesan for a quick dinner when you just don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.
And did I mention that a pad of this stuff makes baked or mashed potatoes especially craveable?
With the holidays just around the corner, you might want to whip up a big batch of Herb Butter to share with friends and family at all your get-togethers.
