Taking a few extra minutes to make a compound butter is an excellent way to amp up the flavor of the simplest foods. I had planned on grilling corn to go along with our burgers. Blending butter with a few simple, everybody should have on hand ingredients, resulted in a delicious butter ready to be spread on the hot corn on the cob.
4 T. softened butter
1/4 t. minced garlic
1 T. grated Parmesan cheese
dash or two of salt
a few grinds of black pepper
1 t. Tuscan Herb seasoning blend
In a small bowl combine all ingredients. Use on corn on the cob, baked potatoes, pasta, steamed vegetables, and of course, warm bread!
