Flavored Butter Recipes

party sandwiches
Yum

These flavored butter recipes, aka Pikante Butter, are great sandwich spreads, go great with veggies and meats, and are bursts of flavor for almost anything! It's best to use these butters within 5 days, so make enough, but not too much at one time. Each of the following recipes is for 1/2 cup (1/4 lb) of softened butter. Use unsalted butter (unless otherwise noted).

Serve your sandwiches either plain or fancy. These bites are so pretty to look at and delicious to eat!


15 Flavored Butter Recipes

To 1/2 cup softened butter, add the following ingredients, either finely chopped, grated, or puréed, and mix well.

  1. Cheese Butter: 1/2 cup grated cheese
  2. Anchovy Butter: 2 teaspoons anchovy paste
  3. Horseradish Butter: 1 tbsp horseradish, pinch salt
  4. Nut Butter: 1 tbsp ground nuts, season with lemon juice, salt, pepper
  5. Ham Butter: 3 oz finely chopped cooked ham
  6. Mustard Butter: 1 tbsp mustard, 1 hard-boiled egg yolk
  7. Tomato Butter: 2 tbsp tomato paste, small onion, pepper
  8. Paprika Butter: 1 tbsp sweet paprika powder
  9. Curry Butter: 1 tbsp curry powder, salt
  10. Lemon Butter: juice of half lemon, grated lemon zest
  11. Shrimp Butter: 1/4 lb cooked puréed shrimps, salt, pepper
  12. Garlic Butter: 1 small clove garlic, salt, 1 tbsp chopped chives, pepper
  13. Parsley Butter: Use about 1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley, 1 tbsp. lemon juice, salt, pepper
  14. Herb Butter: Use about 1 tsp dried herbs. Use any or combination of parsley, chives, marjoram, basil, thyme.
  15. Eierbutter (Egg Butter): 2 hard-boiled eggs. Separate yolks from whites. Cream butter and yolks together. Finely chop egg whites and add to butter mixture. Season with salt, pepper, and paprika. 

It is best if the finished flavored butter rests for several hours to let the flavors mingle. Store the butters in the fridge, but remove about 15 minutes before serving. The finished butters can also be frozen for up to one month.

Have any butter left over? Use it as a flavor enhancer to a lean meat or fish dinner. Add it to cooked vegetables. Use your imagination!
