A compound butter is simply room temperature butter blended with a variety of herbs or spices. Once the mixture is well blended, form it into a log, wrap it in plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator or freezer. Any time you’re grilling pull out the butter, cut off a slice and top meat or vegetables hot off the grill.
It’s important to use real butter in these recipes to get the best possible flavor. And when using herbs, it’s important to have fresh herbs on hand. For the mushroom butter, reconstitute dried mushrooms and use the leftovers on pasta.
Use your own herbs and spices to create unique combinations that will impress your guests.
