What about a Compound Butter?

anyone have a favorite compound butter?

anyone make their own butter at home?

just recently made an asiago, chili garlic butter to go with a baguette.

It was delicious the day it was made, but a bit spicy as it aged.
maybe less chili next time.

Asiago, Chili, Garlic Compound Butter

1 stick of unsalted butter, room temp
3 T asiago cheese grated
1 tsp dried chili flakes or 1 small chili minced. (again this gets hot over time)
1/2 tsp garlic (roasted or raw) minced
pinch of salt 

mix all ingredients and roll tightly in wax paper. refridgerate at least one hour before use.

Hello LLL & welcome.   I like to use fresh herbs, shallots and a few drops of wine.  I think the CB goes great with almost anything.
