Have you ever added flavored butters to grilled meats, seafood and vegetables when grilling? By simply adding flavored butter to meats, seafood, vegetables or just about anything you prepare on the grill, you can really change your meal. Flavored butters are simple to prepare and they are frugal as well!

Use flavored butters to add a finishing touch to grilled steaks and salmon, asparagus or corn-on-the-cob. The instant they melt on whatever you’re grilling, their delicious flavors come through, taking your meal to another level!

Since they’re so simple to prepare, you can easily keep a variety of flavored butters at you fingertips. You can store them in the refrigerator for up to two weeks by rolling them into logs and wrapping them in plastic food wrap, parchment or waxed paper. You can also slice the butter into pats and freeze them in resealable plastic food bags for longer storage. Many of the spices can come from your herb garden and make it an affordable addition to your menus!

    I was pleasantly surprised to read this post…my Hubby is growing a lot of herbs for me in the garden and besides using them fresh and drying some, I was looking for ideas. Making an herb butter is a great idea and I will be checking out the recipes at LAND O LAKES® too.
    Thanks for sharing!
