Compound Butter Recipe

Submitted by:
Compound butter is pretty much butter that you have mixed ingredients into and you use to for meat, veggies...pretty much whatever you want. Do not be afraid to change up this recipe with green onions, spices, etc. There are endless possibilities.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: Cool Time 10-60 minutes

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: na


1 stick of butter (slightly softened)
1 Tablespoon of shallots minced
1 tablespoon of Fresh chives chopped
1 large garlic clove minced
a pinch of kosher or table salt
a dash of your favorite Cajun seasoning


Put the butter in a bowl, set aside
On a cutting board, place the garlic on it and put the dash of salt on top of the garlic. With your knife, use the salt as an abrasive to grind the garlic into a paste. Once paste like(can still have a few chunks) place that in the bowl with the butter.
Add the rest of the ingredients. And mix well.
Take a spatula and place the butter onto a sheet of plastic wrap. Almost in a meatloaf shape. Wrap the butter in plastic and mold it into a log. (like a big link of sausage). Place it in fridge to harden for at least a few hours. I recommend making this a day before you use it because the flavors meld together better. Once hardened, use it like you would any butter.
