This delicious herby, cheesy compound butter is a perfect additional touch to any dish that needs a little boost without extra carbs.
I love to roast a chicken and then melt this butter over the top just before it is due to come out of the oven, it creates a lovely moist and tasty glaze on the chicken skin.
And it's not just cheese and herbs you can use to make flavored butter. Sweet or savory — the options are endless! How does pumpkin pie spice flavored butter served over low-carb pancakes sound? For more tasty ideas, make sure to check out our Top 12 Compound Butter Recipes. Enjoy!
