Compound Butter - It's a savory and delicious topping for your potatoes or as a spread for toast. Our sour cream and chives compound butter has your sides covered.
I don't know about you, but sometimes I get a craving for buttered toast. While a simple salted butter on a toasted slice of bread usually hits the spot, there are times when I need more.
More of what you ask? Well, simply put, more flavor. That's where a flavored butter can come in handy.
Compound butter is easy to prepare, takes very little time, and comes in a multitude of varieties.
We have made a sour cream and chives butter that only takes four ingredients and can be whipped up in no time. Did you see what I did there, whipped butter, get it?
Let's try move past that lame attempt at humor and focus on what's important; a delicious compound butter that can be used for more than just toast.
Since it has sour cream and chives, you can bet it works beautifully on potatoes. From simple baked options to loaded Hasselback potatoes, the combination of flavors in this butter is the perfect match.
One unique way to use our compound butter is as a topping for your steak. It might sound strange at first but think about it.
All that creamy butter and sea salt melting into a sauce on your favorite cut of meat. I haven't tried it on chicken or fish yet.
However, you may want to try it on those meats as well.
In closing, the best thing I can say about this compound butter is that it only lasted about three days before it was gone. Oh, and please correct me if I am wrong, but I think this recipe might be keto friendly.
If so, this might be our first ever keto friendly offering. As always, I wish everyone a long life, love everlasting, and a belly full of silky smooth butter!
