Save

If you are tired of spreading that same old stick of butter on your bread, then you should spice it up. In just a few short minutes, you can create a butter spread that will leave your mouth watering. Here's an Herb Butter recipe that will knock your socks off.

Things You'll Need

  • 2 sticks of butter
  • Chives
  • Parsley
  • Sage
  • Tarragon
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • Remove the butter from your fridge and allow it soften on the counter for about 30 minutes.

  • Finely chop fresh parsley, tarragon, chives and sage. You do not need a lot of each. For this amount of butter, the whole herb mixture should only be 2 tbsp.

  • Add herb mixture, butter and lemon juice in a bowl.

  • Combine the ingredients using a hand mixer until well mixed.

  • Place in the fridge for an hour so that the butter again hardens. Serve with bread or place on steak just off the grill.

Tips & Warnings

  • The Herb Butter will last about 10 days in the fridge. If you have excess you may freeze it for about two months.
  • If you want to really impress your friends and family, place your Herb Butter in a mold to let it harden. You can also use a cookie cutter to make a shape out of your butter. Just be sure that your butter is good and cold.
  • Feel free to mix and match herbs. Different kinds of mints might be interesting to try. Just maintain the same ratio of butter to herbs.
  • Be sure to add a pinch of salt before mixing if you are using unsalted butter.
