Roasted Garlic & Parsley Butter

roasted garlic & parsley butter

Roasted garlic butter is amazing on its own but when you add fresh herbs to the butter, it just takes it to a whole other level. I love making compound butters! I think it makes butter look fancy and did I mention extra yummy! :)

Good ‘ol butter! More the merrier, right?

When making roasted garlic butter, I highly recommend buying the big bulbs of garlic. I find that the smaller sized garlic bulbs make it harder to squeeze out the cloves later on. Anyhoo, slice of the top, drizzle with olive oil, s+p, then bake for 30 minutes in a 425° oven.

While that bakes, finely chop up some fresh flat-leaf parsley…

Oooh baby, roasted garlic! If you need a snack break and want to indulge, squeeze one the cloves and spread it over a piece of toasted crusty bread!

Combine everything into a bowl and stir, making sure that everything is mixed well.
