Make your own gourmet butter to add amazing flavor and zest to bread, fresh homemade biscuits, steamed vegetables, or even on meat, fish, or chicken dishes. Homemade gourmet butter can be sweet or savory.

Compound butter sometimes referred to as gourmet butter, is a combination of real butter and complementary ingredients that can render the finished product sweet or savory. Similar to condiments, they are frequently used to enhance the flavor of an entrée.


How to MYO Gourmet Butter

Combine all of the ingredients (from your desired flavor listed below) in a chopper or food processor and pulse until thoroughly combined. Transfer the butter onto a sheet of wax paper or plastic wrap and form it into a small log.

Wrap the log well, twisting the ends to secure, and refrigerate up to 2 weeks. All butter should be brought to room temperature before preparing the recipe unless otherwise stated.
