Gourmet Mommie Essential: Garlic Herb Butter

Every time I make this recipe I make plenty to use in all kinds of recipes. It is an flavorful addition to meat, veggies and even seafood.

This is a tried and true herb combination BUT feel free to swap any of them out for your favorite fresh or dried herbs. there is really no wrong answer here, after all it's butter so what could possibly go wrong?



With enough butter, anything is good! –Julia Child

Honestly this recipe came from my inability to really measure things like butter. My philosophy? You can never have too much, right? Well not exactly, I ended up making way too much but it worked out because I discovered, this stuff tastes good on so many dishes. I decided I wanted to mimic that buttery finish so often served with grilled meat a fancy restaurants so I took 2 sticks of butter (I know...too much) a bunch of fresh and dried herbs I had on hand plus a ton of minced garlic, threw them into my stand mixer and let it cream. The result was this wonderfully rich compound butter that I literally now put on EVERYTHING. It also helps me to save a ton of time when I want to add just a touch of gourmet to an otherwise boring plate of meat and potatoes.
