Author Notes: My favorite compound butter is gorgonzola chive garlic butter. This is great served on top of a grilled steak. It is also good spread on some good crusty bread and toasted under the broiler or just on bread or rolls to have with a meal.
I suggest you make up two sticks of butter the first time; it is addictive and will be gone quick.
Makes: one stick
1 stick of butter, softened
Crumbled gorgonzola cheese to equal a stick of butter
tablespoon Snipped fresh chives or 1 teaspoon dried
teaspoons Dried garlic flakes, I used Penzey's
- 1. Place stick of butter in a bowl; add about an equal amount of crumbled gorgonzola cheese, a good tablespoon of snipped chives or 1 teaspoon dried chives, 2 teaspoons dried garlic flakes, I use Penzey’s. Mix all together until mixed through.
- 2 Let sit about a half hour then place on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll up twisting the ends.
- Store in the refrigerator or freeze for later.
