Do you love a great steak? A juicy piece of chicken? Savory seafood? How about adding a ton of flavor to a baked potato or a slice of grilled French bread? I’ve got the flavor bomb you need for all of these dishes and so much more! It’s called Compound Butter and it just elevates the flavor of so many foods in a very simple way! Compound butter is a real restaurant secret! It’s used a lot in high-end steak houses and many other establishments, and now you have the recipes to make your own right at home. Compound butter is simply unsalted butter, extra virgin olive oil and fresh herbs and spices mixed together and refrigerated. You can make one basic all-purpose compound or create several compounds with ingredients that enhance certain foods. For my compounds I use unsalted butter so I can control the salt content, and besides, in my opinion, unsalted butter just tastes better. Then you will add chopped fresh herbs, some spices and salt and pepper. I love the idea of compound butters because once you make them, you just roll the butter combination into logs on parchment paper, keep them in your refrigerator and use them any time you want! Flavor bombs, for an explosion of flavor!
