Flavored Butter

There are a lot of people that take butter to the extreme. Some people put 2 sticks in every dish they make, others act like if a teaspoon of butter is consumed they will gain 200 pounds instantly and have a heart attack.

I really can't think of anything better than bread still warm from the oven topped with a little bit of homemade butter. It was so simple to make, I will have to make some and show you how easy it is. Today I thought I would share a fantastic flavored butter recipe.

Flavored Butter
1 stick salted butter, softened
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp parsley flakes

Combine ingredients and stir until combined. Place butter mixture in the center of a piece of plastic wrap. Roll the butter into a log, and twist the ends to make the roll air tight. Place in the refrigerator until hard. Place a small pat on potatoes, breads, meats, or veggies when you want some flavor and a buttery flavor.

Happy Cooking!
