This simple garlic butter recipe is great to have in the fridge and is so versatile.
I’ve even been known to spread it onto corn-on-the-cob and use as a dip with dough balls and pizza crusts (the kids idea) but it worked a treat!

But what I really love to use this garlic butter for is on top of a good steak, one slice will melt beautifully into the meat and form its own little sauce just for me, trust me if you have ten minutes to spare, this will be a game changer to have in your fridge.

📋 What do we need?

A wooden table with all the ingredients laid out separately
  • Butter I’ve used unsalted butter but you can use salted butter and just reduce the amount of salt by half.
  • Parsley If you don’t have dried parsley, fresh parsley finely chopped would work too.
  • Garlic Garlic is king in this recipe so you want plump firm cloves.

📺 Watch how to make it

Full recipe with detailed steps in the recipe card at the end of this post.

  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.
  2. Use right away if you want the butter to be soft
  3. If making ahead, cover the bowl in clingfilm and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.

👩‍🍳PRO TIP You don’t have to use regular unsalted butter – Use your favourite butter! I love to use President butter or Kerrygold butter. If you’re using salted butter, just reduce the amount of salt you’re adding by half.

If you’re making ahead, and would those lovely little rounds of garlic butter, then simply spoon the mixed butter out into a fat sausage shape (2.5cm or 1” in diameter) on a long piece of clingfilm. Then roll it into a sausage shape, tying off the ends, then place in the refrigerator until firm.

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.

  • Alternatively, spoon the mixed butter out into a fat sausage shape (2.5cm or 1” in diameter) on a long piece of clingfilm.

  • Wrap the butter in the clingfilm and roll it on the countertop to get an even sausage shape. Place in the refrigerator to firm up.

  • Unwrap and slice into discs when ready to serve.

✎ Notes

Using the garlic butter right away?
You can use the garlic butter straight after the mixing step if you don’t need to store it.
Use right away if you want the butter to be soft (i.e if you’re spreading it on bread to make garlic bread).
Can I make it ahead?
Absolutely, this simple garlic butter was made to be prepared ahead, just keep it covered in the fridge and it will last for two weeks.
Use right from the fridge if you want it firm, or leave, covered on the countertop for an hour, if you want it softer.
Ingredient swaps
Chilli flakes, try adding some chilli flakes for a bit of a kick
Curry Powder, a teaspoon added to the butter along with some cumin would be so good on  potatoes or chicken 
Smoked butter, if you have a smoking gun you can cold smoke the butter to add a seriously chefy touch
