Herbed Garlic Butter

Keyword: Gluten Free, Holiday Entertaining, Under 30 Minutes
Author: Denise


  • 1 stick unsalted butter room temperature ⁣
  • 2 garlic cloves⁣
  • 1/3-1/2 cup fresh herbs I like a combination of sage, chives and thyme⁣
  • Zest of a lemon⁣


  • To make compound butter, finely chop garlic and herbs and add to a bowl along with room temperature butter, lemon zest, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Stir well with a spoon or small spatula to incorporate everything evenly into the butter. Alternatively, throw everything into a food processor and pulse until evenly combined and no large pieces of herb remain. Butter can be made ahead, and leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up to two weeks. ⁣
