Homemade Garlic Butter Ingredients

The ingredient list is not so impressive, but this combo packs a lot of flavor! Try using the best quality ingredients you can find:

  • Butter: We use unsalted butter to control salt intake. Keep it at room temperature for 30 minutes so that it is easier to whip.
  • Garlic Powder: We like garlic granules, but super fine powder is okay.
  • Black pepper: Use whole peppercorns that you grind with a mortar and pestle; they are way more fragrant than pre-ground pepper.
  • Smoked paprika: Brings a nice spicy touch to the flavored butter.
  • Olive Oil: Olive oil makes the butter fluffier, with a great Mediterranean flavor.
  • Parmesan Cheese: Finely grated Parmesan cheese works. We use a Microplane grater.
  • Fresh Parsley: To brighten the flavors. If you plan to keep the butter for longer than 1 week, use dried parley instead.

Tips for the Garlic Butter Recipe

  • If you’re short on time and forgot to take the butter out of the refrigerator, heat it in the microwave for 10 seconds.
  • If you serve the butter at the table, use a spoon or spatula to transfer it to small ramekins for a nice presentation.

How to use the garlic butter

For a great appetizer, slather the garlic butter on toast, slices of fresh country bread, or crostinis. You can also use it as a steak or grilled chicken topper. In cooking, use the garlic butter to coat a whole chicken before roasting—it’s delicious!
