I love this butter. It's so quick and easy to make, and makes an awesome condiment for a whole pile of different foods. I've had it on bunless burgers, steak, eggs, and roast beef. My daughter loves it so much, she will literally eat it with a spoon. It's fragrant and flavorful and wonderful in every buttery way.
- 1 stick (4 oz/ 113 g) salted butter, softened
- 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
- 4-6 fresh sage leaves (for larger leaves use 4, for smaller use 6)
- 1/2 tsp fresh thyme leaves
- Lay the sage leaves flat in a stack, one upon another. Roll the leaves, cigar-style, then slice across into thin ribbons. This is called a chiffonade
- In a small bowl combine the softened butter, minced garlic, thyme leaves, and chiffonade cut sage leaves. Mix well to distribute the herbs and garlic throughout.
- Cover the bowl and refrigerate, OR spoon the butter onto plastic wrap and wrap in your desired shape. You may also use molds, if desired.
- Refrigerate until solid, or until ready to use.
