Butter Foods Up With Extra Flavor and Flair - You can add an exotic touch to your favorite grilled foods simply by adding flavoring to butter. If you're a fan of garlic and butter, you'll love flavored butters which can be used to create lightly seasoned sauces for grilled fish, meat, poultry or vegetables. They're also a delicious addition to warm grilled bread.

Directions:

These butters are easy to prepare and can include a wide variety of ingredients like herbs, nuts, spices, vegetables or citrus zest. Such compound butters can be made as many as four days ahead of time or frozen for up to two months. Simply roll flavored butters into logs; cover with plastic wrap; chill until firm; then slice, scoop or pipe them onto prepared foods. For serving up "prettier" portions, use a butter curler or melon baller, or pack the butter into decorative ramekins.
