Delicious Herb-Infused Compound Butter Recipe
Written by: Lindsay Sibson
I love cooking.
Well… let me re-phrase that – I like cooking for myself.
When it comes to cooking for others, I always want to “reach for the moon,” but I usually end up crashing into the stars as I plummet back down to earth.
Can you relate? You want to impress others with your culinary skills, but usually can barely squeak by with creating something that is edible (and far from impressive).
However, there are certain elements of a meal that you can easily upgrade that will not only infuse flavors into the dish, but will also add a decadent and creative flair to any dish.
One of those items is Herb-Infused Compound Butter.
It’s creamy. It’s buttery. It’s OH-SO-delightful.
