Don’t look too closely at the blurry photo … I know, it’s subpar. And I am so, so, so sorry. But this was so good that I just couldn’t wait to dig in and somehow all of my photos came out blurred. I swear, it won’t happen again. So, just forgive me for now.

Besides, the goodness of whirled butter more than makes up for the badness of the photo. Just a little dob of this delish butter is all you need for a sizzling steak (which of course causes it to melt everywhere) to make the steak taste simply divine. I suggest you try it. And again (cause this definitely makes enough for several meals).

Sage, Thyme and Garlic Butter
yields 1/2 cup

This butter is fantastic when served over steak. It could also be delightful on a baked potato or spread on a baguette and toasted. However you serve it, it’s packed with bold flavors.

1 stick unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
2 small cloves garlic (or one really big one), crushed
1 tbsp chopped fresh sage
1 tbsp fresh thyme
a few pinches of salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth. Spoon into a bowl and serve.

  1. Mmm, love flavored butters. Sounds delish!

  2. Butter is the perfect medium to deliver the flavor of these herbs. I often do this with basil but I have to try this combination :)
