Flavored Butters

Chipolte Butter, Parmesan, Herb and Garlic Butter and Roasted Red Pepper Butter

Making flavored butters adds a little interest to a simple meal and they are easy to make and can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen.  I like to make name tags for the butters so your guests know what they are.  These recipes can easily be doubled for a larger party.

Chipolte Butter

Take 1 stick of softened butter and mix in 1 tablespoon(or more to taste) of finely chopped chipolte in adobo sauce and mix well.  

Parmesan, Herb and Garlic Butter

Take 1 stick of softened butter and mix in 3 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese, 1 minced garlic cloves or 2 teaspoons garlic powder, and 1 tablespoons fresh minced herbs – thyme, basil, oregano and mix well.

Roasted Red Pepper Butter
