Compound Butter/Flavored Butter – Savory

Compound butter also known as flavored butter is one of the easiest ways to pack a punch of flavor in any dish. You can make the butter savory or sweet. I have made both and thoroughly enjoy each and everyone I have made.

I made this savory version because I plan on roasting two chickens tomorrow. Two chickens? Well, it is just as easy to roast two chickens as it is to roast one. Then I will have plenty of chicken for various meals this coming week. Sorry, back to topic.

It only takes about 5 minutes to makes this flavored butter. See how easy it is.

Note: You can slice off as much as you want to use. Also, you can freeze the butter until needed.

  2. Thank you. The butter adds a tremendous amount of flavor.

  3. This looks amazing! I’ll definitely have to try it out soon!

    1. I hope you do. It really bumps up the flavor. You can freeze the compound butter and just slice some off as you want to use it.

  4. Yum! I always rub a butter-herb mixture under the skin of my chickens, too, before roasting. What a great idea to make a compound butter that can be stored in the freezer for just that purpose! That’s a huge time-saver!

    1. thank you Rebecca. I completely agree. It takes you r cooking up to another level.

  5. I love storing compounded butter in slices in the freezer that way you can just pull it out and toss it in a pan or pasta! My rolled logs never look as good as yours did in the picture!

    1. Thanks. I have had lots of practice.

  6. I need to make me some of these for my butter love and my love of savory food. Thank you for the reminder and the inspiration.

    1. Thanks Joy. You can make them savory or sweet, so versatile.
