The most amazing Garlic Butter Recipe!!!

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 teaspoons to a pan of sauteed vegetables or adding it to some pan-seared steak or chicken.  It adds so much flavor!  We love Italian food around here too.  It’s super easy to use this as garlic bread spread.  So delicious!

Fresh and delicious ingredients in this garlic bread spread!

How 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 months.


Garlic Butter Spread Uses:
  • sautéing vegetables
  • add a teaspoon to chicken before baking
  • melt on some seared steak
  • add to salmon before baking
  • garlic bread
  • melt and spread on freshly baked breadsticks or rolls


My Garlic Pull Apart Bread recipe is a great way to use this recipe or Homemade Marinara Sauce or with the best homemade sun-dried tomato Alfredo Sauce
