2 tablespoon Basic flavoring (finely cut or grated)
2 tablespoon Herbs of choice (finely cut or grated)
Soften butter by leaving it out of the fridge for a couple of hours. Alternatively, we can just put it into the microwave oven for 10 - 20 sec on the highest setting. We don't need it to be liquified but only soft enough to work with.
Chop up the other ingredients finely that we want to add to our compound butter. Alternatively, we can use dried spices or herbs but fresh always tastes better.
Add in some or all of the basic flavorings.
Throw in some extra flavors by adding pungent fresh herbs to our compound butter. Of course, we can just use one thing from all the available options but who could resist of some garlic, Parmesan, bacon or all?
Mix them well together. We can use a machine but it should be doable with a fork, given that we started off with a soft butter.
There are many options to store our flavored butter. We can simply leave it in the bowl we prepared it, roll it up into plastic wraps or use our silicone cupcake moulds and fill them all up.
Place the freshly made compound butter into the fridge or freezer until it hardens back to normal or use it straight away.
