It is truly indeed that the deliciousness of the food comes from the fresh ingredients used. And to taste the real goodness of the dish – is the addition of fresh herbs.

Bread are one of the most beloved breakfast fares, and in this recipe you can do more to those fluffy delights by adding homemade butter.

Herb butter is easy to make and keeps well in your freezer.  It’s great to keep on hand for jazzing up those last minute meals.

Garlic Herbs Flavored Butter

Ingredients:1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened slightly (you can use salted butter, just leave the extra salt out), 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon sea salt (depending on how salty you like things),1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper,2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh dill,2 teaspoons coarsely chopped fresh parsley,2 cloves of garlic (but better to use 1 1/2 – the avoid overpowering the herbs),1 teaspoon of olive oil
Chop the herbs as fine as possible..
Cream the butter and herbs together with a fork. Add the olive oil and salt to taste
On a piece of plastic wrap, shape the butter into a log about one inch in diameter. Wrap the log in plastic.
The butter will keep in the refrigerator for a week or a month in the freezer.
When you’re ready to use it, just slice off a piece and place directly on the hot food. If the butter is frozen, let it warm slightly before using. We tried it for breakfast – What a yummy bruschetta!!
