The Most Amazing Garlic Butter
I love having a jar of garlic butter spread in my fridge at all times! It makes dinner time so much easier.
I love adding a couple of teaspoons to a pan of sautéed vegetables or adding it to some pan-seared steak or chicken.
It adds so much flavor! We love Italian food around here too and it’s super easy to use this to make the most amazing garlic bread. So delicious!
Ingredients in Creamy Garlic Butter:
Butter: Use Salted butter for this recipe. Make sure the butter is at room temperature so it’ll be easy to whip.
Olive Oil: This adds a lot of richness to the garlic butter and also the authentic Italian flavor.
Parmesan: Parmesan Powder Cheese works best here. Finely Shredded Parmesan Cheese will work in a pinch too.
Parsley: Dried Parsely works best in this recipe.
Garlic Powder: 100% pure garlic powder is best.
Tips to make Garlic Butter:
- Use room temperature butter
- You can use the parmesan powder or the shredded parmesan or a mix of both. The important part is the flavor!
- You can use fresh parsley if you plan to use it all right away. I actually refer to use the dried parsley flakes in this recipe. It keeps in the fridge for a couple of months.
Garlic Butter Spread Uses:
- sautéing vegetables
- add a teaspoon to the chicken before baking
- melt on seared steak during the last couple minutes of cooking
- add to salmon before baking
- garlic bread-spread a thin layer on french bread before broiling.
- melt and spread on freshly baked breadsticks or rolls

Add the butter to a medium-sized mixing bowl.

Slowly add the olive oil while continuing to mix the butter.
Sprinkle in the cheese, parsley, and garlic powder. Mix until light and fluffy again
