Make Your Own Flavored Butter

Just had dinner at Ruth Chris’s and I forgot how much I loooove their crusty, warm bread and whipped butter. What is it about whipped butter that is so good? I love how easy it is to spread on the bread. I found out whipped butter is very easy to make:

Soften 1/4 lb stick of butter to room temperature. Add 2tbsp of milk or water and whip with a mixer on slow until light and creamy.

It makes SUCH a difference when you are serving bread!

I also once went to a restaurant that had a trio of flavored butters to go with their bread. My favorite was the sun dried tomato butter which I plan to make for boyrobot one day since he loves butter and sun dried tomatoes. Here are some recipes I found. It seems like a pretty simple way to dress up butter and impress your dinner guests!

Lemon Honey Butter
4 oz butter, softened
¼ tsp salt
2 tsp lemon zest
1 tbsp honey

Sundried Tomato Butter
1 cup boiling water
1/3 cup sundried tomatoes (soak in water for 10 mins, squeeze them out, and mince before adding)
4 oz butter, softened
¼ tsp salt

Garlic-Herb Butter
4 oz butter, softened
1 clove garlic, finely minced
2 tbsp fresh basil, minced
1 tsp fresh oregano, minced
½ tsp fresh thyme, minced
¼ tsp salt

And if you ever want to make your own bread, don’t forget to try the no knead bread recipe. I made it once and it was SO easy and yum.
