I love making my own compound butters.  They seem so fancy and fussy, but they’re really so simple.  And so very, very delicious!  This one pairs two of my favorite flavors – tomato and basil.  My husband, affectionately dubbed Mr. Juggling Act Mama, is Italian and I’ve come to love the flavors he grew up eating.  This Tomato Basil Compound Butter really couldn’t be simpler – the key is starting with room temperature butter.  Be sure you don’t get impatient and pop it into the microwave because that will ruin the texture.

Notes

Delicious over hot pasta, or spread on Italian bread and top with granulated garlic salt for the most incredible garlic bread you've ever eaten!

You can serve this Tomato Basil Compound Butter so many different ways.  My favorite is to spread it on Italian bread with a sprinkle of granulated garlic salt – it makes the most incredible garlic bread.  It’s also delicious on pasta, and even chicken or steak.
