Garlic-Herb Butter

A very French thing.  Delicious slathered onto warm French bread, tossed with pasta, dolloped on a baked potato or grilled salmon, or spread on a roast beef sandwich.  Double the recipe to make a large batch to keep on hand.


1 stick of unsalted butter (1/4 pound), at room temperature

2 Tablespoons minced shallots

2 cloves garlic

1 Tablespoon finely chopped thyme leaves

1/2 Tablespoon finely chopped parsley leaves

1/2 Tablespoon finely chopped oregano leaves

Salt and pepper to taste


1. Cream the butter with an electric mixer until it becomes light - it will turn lighter in color and become a bit fluffy.   

2. Add the shallots.

3. Grate the garlic on a microplane and stir it in. 

4. Mix in the herbs and salt and pepper to taste.

5. Your Garlic-Herb Butter is ready!  Will keep in the refrigerator for weeks, or in the freezer for months.

Have fun!
