Honey butter and garlic butter are delicious, but...nothing new. Still, flavored butters are an easy way to dress up a meal! Use them on breads, veggies, potatoes...
Soften butter to room temperature. Add ingredients to taste.
Here are some other flavor combinations to get you started:
* sun dried tomato and caper butter
* chile-lime-tequila butter
* curry butter
* diced, caramelized mushroom & shallot butter (pictured)
* rosemary and thyme butter
* cardamom-honey butter
* tarragon and lemon zest butter
* cabernet-gorgonzola butter
To really go all out: Roll butter into a log; chill, then slice into ¼" pieces before serving.
