  • 1 stick of salted butter, softened
  • 6 cloves, or 3 tsp. roasted garlic, (see this recipe)
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tsp. chopped chives


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine all ingredients, and mix until garlic and herbs are well incorporated with the butter.
  2. Place butter in a log shape on a large piece of parchment paper. Use the paper to roll the compound butter into a cylinder shape, and fold in ends of paper to seal. Place in an airtight container or a gallon-sized ziplock back, and place in the freezer.
  3. When ready to use, remove from freezer, and cut off a slice, or two, or as many as you need.
