This is my favorite flavored butter recipe because this butter goes with so many things it would be impossible to list them all.
- 1 cup homemade unsalted butter
- 1 TBS garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 TBS homemade garlic powder
- 1 tsp homemade Italian seasoning
- 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt to taste
- 1/4 tsp paprika
In a bowl, combine the butter, garlic and parmesan cheese. Season with the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.
I usually triple the recipe, divide into equal portions and roll into logs - then freeze them. That way you always have this on hand at a moments notice to put on fish, slip under the skin of chicken, or melt over a New York strip steak.
Just slice a loaf of homemade French bread horizontally (lengthwise)** and spread on this magical garlic butter (you may add shredded mozzarella on top - a must in Wisconsin). Bake it in the oven until golden brown. Out of this world.
**You may also slice on the diagonal. It is the best garlic bread spread recipe - a keeper for sure.
