Author Savory Spicerack

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks of softened unsalted butter (each stick of butter is equivalent to 8 tablespoons)
  • 1/2 teaspoon truffle salt
  • 4 tablespoons white truffle oil
  • 2 garlic cloves minced (finely chopped)
  • About 20 basil leaves (roughly chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Italian Leaf Parsley (roughly chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon oregano roughly chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add the softened butter to a mixer and mix for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Next add the minced garlic, truffle salt, and truffle oil to the mixer. Mix the butter mixture for about 3 minutes or until the mixture is well blended.
  3. Now add the basil, parsley, and oregano to the butter mixture, and mix the butter mixture for another 3 minutes or until well blended.
  4. Let the butter sit for about 15 to 30 minutes before placing in the refrigerator. (This allows the flavors to blend together).
  5. Place the butter on parchment paper, and wrap the parchment paper around the butter.
  6. Then place the butter into a food storage plastic bag, and place in the freezer for about 4 hours so that the butter can harden into a butter stick type of mold.
  7. Before serving place in the refrigerator so that the butter can slightly soften for easy serving.

Recipe Notes

I make the oregano optional as it has a strong flavor in the butter. I like the oregano, but some may not.....
Meal Planning Tip: Divide your finished product into smaller portions before freezing so that you have your freezer fully stocked with this butter for multiple uses, you don't have to worry about using the full two sticks of butter in a short amount of time.
