Butter is awesome. I really love it. Call me an elitist, if you must. It could be true. Regardless, I will never return to margarine. Butter is where it’s at. Especially when spread on fresh-from-the-oven french bread.

Last night, we celebrated two of my roommates’ birthdays. Our theme: the 80s. Side ponytails, skinny jeans, leggings, bright colors. The usual. For the 80s.

My contribution to the food table? French bread and butter.

Now, before you judge me and ask, “why is the butter worth mentioning?” Let me tell you. This was no ordinary bowl(s) of butter.

How long did it take me? 5 minutes each. Tops. For each bowl, I used one stick of butter. Let it warm to room temperature and mash it with a fork. Then, mix in whatever you want!

Butter #1:

  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • parsley
  • sea salt
  • ground black pepper

Butter #2:

  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • parsley
  • red pepper flakes (small amount! unless you like it hot 🙂 )
  • sea salt
  • Italian seasoning

Butter #3:

  • chives
  • sea salt

I didn’t measure the spices, I just dumped. Aim for somewhere between 1 tsp and 1 Tbs of each spice for each stick of butter. Beyond that, it really depends on your taste. Give it a try! You really can’t go wrong here.

  1. yum! The bread looks great too! you’ve been rocking the bread. I tried making some challah recently, it looked beautiful but it weighed like 10 pounds because it never rose correctly. I really want to get better with making bread.
