Compound Butter

I actually made this a week ago on Jan 11, but wanted to try it on a few things before giving it a rating. One cool thing about this recipe is that it was the first time I used the old stand mixer my sister gave me years ago. I started out trying to use the hand mixer with the whisk attachment but that failed miserably, so out came the stand mixer and things went swimmingly from there.

I ended up with a lot, so I left some for use now, and some to freeze log-style like in the show (mine didn’t come out as neat and tidy).

This stuff is fantastic. Among other things we’ve tried it on:

  • Bread
  • Steak
  • Green beans
  • Cauliflower
  • Pasta” and sauce

A great flavor boost for any of these. Looking forward to being off the low carb thing and trying it on some fresh, warm dinner rolls.

  • Crowd: 4/5
  • Ease: 3/5
  • The recipe wasn't super exact about quantities (I wish I weighed them) but I used a tablespoon of each herb coarsely chopped, and approximately one ounce of chives. I think it could have used a touch more of each, but was still really good.
