With just a little preparation, you can have the fanciest butter on the block, or just a little change of pace for spreading on biscuits, toast, or freshly broiled fish.
Prep Time:15 minutes
Total Time:1 hour 15 minutes
Yield:1/2 cup seasoned butter 1x
Category:Sides & Sauces
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
3 tablespoons chopped chives
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Combine all ingredients in a small mixing bowl.
When ingredients are thoroughly mixed, you can form the butter into a log by rolling it in waxed paper and pinching the ends closed. You can also put the butter into silicone molds of small shapes, such as flowers. Or you can just put the blended butter into a pretty serving bowl.
However you decide to prepare the butter, chill it for about an hour to let it firm up.
Serve at the table as a special butter for biscuits, or use to top freshly broiled fish or hot side dishes, such as green beans or mashed potatoes.
Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container.
