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 ½ cup (¼ lb) of softened butter. Use unsalted butter (unless otherwise noted).

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.

Serve your sandwiches either plain or fancy. It's actually fun to be creative with these. Make these bites pretty to look at, because they are so delicious to eat!

Oma's Tips:

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!

Check out my Sandwich Recipes to see ways to use these flavored butters. Use either the herbed butter or the savory butter recipes to make any sandwich better.

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
