Compound butter is something that seems (and sounds) fancy.
But its totally not. (Shhh, no one needs to know that.)
It’s really easy to make and can be used with whatever herbs you have on hand. I’m just a little obsessed with sage + butter so I stuck with that.
The steps are easy:
Chop up sage.
Heat butter + sage until sage is crispy.
Combine with butter.
Spread on anything you can think of. Hot bread is AMAZING (not that I would know or anything…) but it would be fabulous on your favorite meat or fish as well.
