What could be better than being able to quickly add the sweet savory flavor of roasted garlic to a dish?!
Having the garlic already roasted from another recipe, of course!! Whenever I make my slow roasted tomatoes, I always use the roasted garlic to make a stick of garlic butter. It is SO good on EVERYTHING!!
I slather the garlic butter on bread when I serve soup or use it to add a nice punch of flavor to some caramelized onions. Most recently, I used the garlic butter to make my grandpa a zucchini stir fry that he seemed to love. It wasn’t grandma’s cooking, but he said I was a good cook. Yay!
Obviously, this slow roasted garlic butter is pretty high on my favorites list, haha.
Here is how simple it is to make:
Remove your slow roasted garlic from the skins and place it into a bowl.
Add 1/2 a cup of softened salted butter and then use a fork to smash it all together. Once the garlic has been thoroughly incorporated into the butter you can leave it as is, or you can dump it onto a piece of plastic wrap and shape it into a log. Then, refrigerate it until it is hardened.
- 1/2 cup of salted butter, softened
- 4-5 cloves of roasted garlic
- Peel the skins off of the roasted garlic cloves and mash them up into a bowl.
- Beat in the softened butter until it is thoroughly incorporated.
- Either use as is or shape into a log using plastic wrap.
Note: If I make more than one stick, I usually add one to the fridge and then put the rest into the freezer for later.
Voila! The easiest roasted garlic butter ever!
