Roasted Garlic and Herb Butter

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.



I sincerely apologize for the simplicity of this recipe, and it’s lack of a beer pairing, but I had to share it with you all. Flavored butters are awesome and one of my favorites to make is honey butter. This recipe is a version of that…that went a little wild. I just started throwing a bunch of ingredients in, assuming that, in the end, it would taste delicious. It was a gamble I was more than willing to make, and the result was unbelievably satisfying. Flavored butters are great to use when you have an excess of ingredients lying around the kitchen. In our case, these ingredients consisted of mostly herbs. I didn’t have a whole lot of faith in my potted, patio garden this year. We don’t have a yard, so I decided to give a patio garden a try. Who knew that I would have an overabundance of herbs. Flavored butter was a great use of them. What’s so great about recipes like this, is their diversity. You can use them just about anywhere/in anything. This particular butter goes great on steak — we did this last night =). It’s great sautéed with onion — we also did this last night. It’s even great on toast. Your options are endless when it comes to flavored butters.







Fun things:

1. Like I mentioned above, your options are limitless when it comes to flavored butters. Get creative. This was a savory butter, but they can most certainly be sweet. Honey is a great addition, and fig jam is one of my favorites. Carrot and ginger is also a great way to go. Yes…limitless…options.

2. I’ve been roasting a lot of garlic lately, and I think it is 100% necessary to roast the garlic for this recipe, rather than throwing it in raw. Roasted garlic has such a great flavor. In my instructions list, I mentioned how Zach and I roast garlic. I have roasted many heads of garlic in my day, and I find this way to be the best.

3. The last step in the instructions was to roll the butter up in a piece of wax paper and refrigerate it. You don’t have to refrigerate, but I think it’s a good idea for best results. I wanted to slice it up, and this was the best way to go about it. If you would like to keep it at room temperature, go for it! It really makes a great spread!

Well I think that’s all for today. I hope everyone has a great day, and I will see you tomorrow! We are making a thai chicken salad that you do not want to miss.

  1. Great idea. Of course, starting with a quality butter will make a big difference in the end product too. Thanks for sharing!

      1. Sorry to be a bother, but do you mean that you rolled it in wax paper to get the log shape? Your rounds look so perfect – I want to achieve that, too!!

        1. Haha no worries! Yeah. I wrapped the butter in wax paper and then formed it into a log that way. This recipe is so old that it’s been awhile since I remember doing it! Lately, I have been doing the same thing but with plastic wrap and it works spectacularly. Good luck! Never be afraid to ask or think you are a bother!
