How to Make Compound Herb Butter
Elevating holiday meals doesn’t have to mean going broke. You can make a meal special with a few simple extra touches, like this compound butter. It takes about five minutes to make and then you pop it into the refrigerator to set until firm. You could make this the night before of the morning of a holiday dinner.

This fresh herb compound butter compliments meats, seafood and breads beautifully. You can substitute dried herbs for the fresh, just remember that dried herbs are more powerful so cut the amount in half.

To make your own compound butter grab your ingredients.
