Betty’s Herb Butter Recipe

Videos are brought you from YouTube to match what you are looking for here on Gardening Resources. If you would like to see a specific video or have a subject covered, please don\\\’t hesitate to let us know.

In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a lovely and tasty Herb Butter. You can use it on fresh bread, or bread that is hot out of the oven, or on toasted bread. You can also spread it on French Bread, Italian Bread, and other specialty breads, and heat it in the oven. It is showy and delicious! Ingredients: ½ cup butter, softened to room temperature (Note: the herbs listed below are fresh herbs. You may substitute dry herbs in place of them, but use only 1/3 as much of the dried herbs.) ½ to 1 tablespoon curly parsley, minced (You may use flat Italian parsley, if you prefer.) ½ to 1 tablespoon chives, minced ¼ to ½ tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced In a small mixing bowl, mix ½ cup softened butter with the desired amount of parsley, chives, and rosemary. Mix until the herbs are evenly distributed throughout the butter. Place herb butter in a pretty serving bowl and chill. Remove your herb butter from the refrigerator and soften before serving with bread. You may spread it on a baked loaf of bread that has been cut lengthwise and place it in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. It will be crispy and gorgeous on top, but soft inside. You may also slice your loaf of bread and place the slices in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes, and then spread individual pieces with herb butter, as desired. Either way, it is a real treat, and looks very nice with a special meal! I hope you enjoy it! –Betty 

    Curly parsley is less tasteful than the regular one. So my mother – and so I do – is using flat parley for taste and the curled one for decoration!

    @CLOWNBOT00 Yes, the herb butter will be just fine using dried herbs. With springtime here, it is fun and refreshing to use fresh herbs, but, if you don’t have them, dried herbs are fine!

    I sort of feel bad because the herbs I used were store brought and not freshly grown ones. I guess it doesn’t matter, it still turned out fine. Thanks Betty.

    @JoeHell67 Thanks for your great comment, Joe! I really like your idea of freezing the leftovers!

    Hello Betty,
    that homemade herb butter is THE best!
    i make a big batch and one half with fresh minced garlic for the best garlic bread around!

    growing herbs is really easy, they don’t need much attention.

    once you discovered your favorite herb blend, you can make some and roll the leftovers in aluminum foil
    and just freeze it.

    Thank you for bringing this up!

    This is awesome for toasted bagels with butter, baked potatoes, toast with garlic (for pasta dishes) and flavor for

    a vegetable dish like roasted potatoes, carrots, onions (easy to do in the oven 350 degrees for about 30 – 45 mins)

    Great recipe Betty. Just planted a bunch of different herbs as the weather has cooled off a great deal now here in Australia.

  22. prettyyounggirl1918 says:

    that looks lovely dear and would be nice with pasta. you have to put chicken wire around the herbs and into the ground and over to protect from rabbits as they dig and jump. my freind was growing several marjuana plants and had to do this as previously they eat them then were all hanging around the railway line high haha
