Bread is a staple side to our meals.

We, like most of you, just can’t get enough! It’s fun to shake things up a bit and add some unexpected flavor.

By simply mixing in some fresh herbs, seasonings, and lemon you can take your bread to a whole new level!! The pops of fresh herbs are a welcome addition. 

This butter spread is so easy to make, and can last for a good bit to be used several days in a row on some dippable crostinis, or use it up all at once on a loaf of French bread toasted in the oven.

Recipe Tips

Here are some tips when putting it together:

  • Herb butter can be made in a bowl or butter mold, or even rolled into a log, wrapped in plastic wrap and chilled overnight.
  • Be sure to rinse off your fresh herbs and allow them to dry thoroughly before chopping and adding to the butter.
  • Use kitchen shears to easily chop your herbs.
  • Butter that has softened at room temperature for several hours is the easiest to work with, it should be fairly easy to stir.
  • There are many uses for herb butter spread. We love to serve it with bread, steak, chicken, turkey, fish and vegetables such as corn on the cob and baked potatoes.
