Basil Butter

This butter is great on just about everything! Breads, vegetables, rice or pasta, but it's awesome on pork chops or steaks right after that last flip on the grill. Add a pat of this butter directly on the meat on the grill. Let it melt and soak into the meat! Yummy!

½ cup butter, softened
¼ cup finely chopped fresh sweet basil and purple basil *
1 large garlic clove, finely minced
½ teaspoon lemon pepper

Mix together well.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
Makes ½ cup.

*You can use sweet basil alone. I used both, because I have both in my garden.

  1. Sounds like this would be great on toast in the morning! Will definitely have to whip some up next time I have some fresh basil. Thanks for sharing!
