Herb Butter


  • 1 stick butter (softened)
  • 1/4 -1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt, to taste


  1. Soften butter to room temperature and then stir with a spoon until creamy.

  2. Stir in garlic, herbs, and salt to taste.

Recipe Notes

If you use salted butter, you might need a little less salt than the recipe calls for. 

You can experiment with your favorite flavors such as, basil, chives, sage, dill, thyme, or lemon.

Herb butter can also be frozen. Just roll it into a log shape in a piece of wax paper or parchment paper and freeze. When ready to serve, slice it to use as butter pats. Try running a knife under hot water to cut the frozen butter easily.
