Herb Butter…Part 2

Herb Butters

LOVE Herb Butters and I did a post awhile back about them and I have found some new flavors to add to our list. All three of these will be great on a freshly grilled steak. I like sauces for meats, but I am not good at them and this is a great substitute. Just slice off a good Tablespoon of your favorite butter and put on your Rib Eye, Chicken breast or ground sirloin. It will add a fresh herb flavor and creaminess from the butter. The ideas for these butter are endless…Meats, breads, popcorn, veggies, sautéed foods, etc…

Gorgonzola Butter

2 ozs. favorite Gorgonzola cheese

1 stick unsalted butter

I use a mini food processor for these butters, place ingredients in with a dash of salt and blend.

Green Butter

1 c. chopped cilantro

1/4 c. chopped green onion

1/2 t. white ground pepper and dash of salt

1 stick of unsalted butter

Place ingredients in processor blend well.

Roasted Garlic Butter

1 roasted head of garlic, scoop out all the pulp mash with a splash of olive oil

1 stick of unsalted butter

dash of salt

Add all ingredients to your processor and blend well.

PACKING YOUR BUTTERS:

I scoop out the butter and place in a piece of plastic wrap, roll into round log and place in frig. After the butter hardens place it onto a piece of parchment paper that you have cut to size, mark on parchment what kind of butter it is roll up and tape closed. I tie the ends like a tootsie-roll and tie ends with string. This is where you can add your own flare to it and make different shapes out of your butter, (heart, round,triangle etc…) wrap in different papers and maybe use different ribbons for different occasions. They make great Hostess gifts. You could place in a basket with fresh breads or fresh veggies from your or someone else’s garden. Enjoy

Ciao!
