Culinary School…practically everything I learned to cook was dripping in butter and had wine in it. Does it get any better than that? You don’t hear me complaining.s
I really doubt I needed to attend culinary school to learn how to make compound butter. I mean really how hard can it be? Softened butter with various sweet and savory ingredients blended in.
With that said, I certainly learned to appreciate compound butters during my time at school. We made so many flavors…the combinations seemed endless. Not to mention e-a-s-y! Flavored butters make dinner instantly taste better without breaking a sweat. Plus they’ll keep in the freezer for six months.
Chef’s Tip: Start with unsalted butter so you can control the amount of salt when adding seasonings. Most important with sweet compound butters. To achieve the fluffier butter, blend with a mixer. However, a fork and bowl works just fine as well.
For this recipe, I used Maille Country Rich Dijon. An affiliate link has been added for your convenience.
