Flavored butter, aka compound butter, is an amazing low-carb condiment and perfect for those following the ketogenic diet. It's one of the best ways to add both great flavour and healthy fats to any meal, including steak, chicken, fish, roasted vegetables and even low-carb pancakes. It takes just a few minutes to prepare and will last for several months if frozen.

The basic ingredient is butter mixed with herbs, spices, or other ingredients such as cheese, nuts or even berries. If you can't eat butter, swap it with ghee, lard, duck fat and even virgin coconut oil.

Tip: With the upcoming Holiday Season, flavored butter will make a delicious and unique gift! Simply wrap it in parchment paper, twist the ends and attach a ribbon and a gift tag.

Method

Make sure all the ingredients have reached room temperature before mixing them. In a medium bowl, mix the softened butter and your preferred spices, herbs and other ingredients. Spoon the butter on a piece of parchment paper. Wrap and roll to create a log shape. Top 12 Flavored Butter Recipes
Twist the ends of the paper in the opposite direction to seal. Store the butter in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for up to 6 months. If you decide to freeze it, it helps if you slice it into as many servings as needed. Top 12 Flavored Butter Recipes
Alternatively, spoon the flavored butter into a silicon ice tray and refrigerate - it's perfect for portion control! Top 12 Flavored Butter Recipes

Awesome ideas and recipe combos! Can't wait to try some of these... I may just try these for Christmas gifts as you've suggested. Like I said, great idea! 👍  I get grass-fed butter in huge 2 lb rolls at the local farmers market so I just need to start gathering my stash! Again, thanks!
