Posted on May 29, 2013 by Anne Milneck | 0 comments

Compound butters may be simple to make but they're nothing but when it comes to taste. Imagine the Mediterranean herbs and walnuts in Soprano's Deliza Butter melting onto your sizzling steak. Or Cranberry Maple butter topping sweet potatoes and turning them into your new favorite side dish. The possibilities are endless. Here are three of our favorite combinations.

Soprano's Deliza Butter

Combine 1/4 cup (1 stick) softened, unsalted sweet cream butter with 1 Tbl Soprano's Deliza and 2 tsp Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive OIl in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until well combined and light and fluffy. Transfer to a piece of parchment, waxed paper or plastic wrap. Roll into a log and refrigerate. Serving ideas: combine with hot pasta for a side dish. Spread onto French bread and bake for "Soprano's Bread." Melt on steaks or chicken just before serving.

Cranberry Maple Butter

Combine 1/4 cup (1 stick) softened, unsalted sweet cream butter with 2 tsp Cranberry Maple Rub and 2 tsp Maple Syrup in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until well combined and light and fluffy. Transfer to a piece of parchment, waxed paper or plastic wrap. Roll into a log and refrigerate. Serving ideas: melt on baked sweet potatoes or stir into whipped sweet potatoes. Tuck a two pats under the skin of a turkey breast and roast. Add to pumpkin soup or butternut squash casserole. 

Hot Smoked Paprika Butter

Combine 1/4 cup (1 stick) softened, unsalted sweet cream butter with 2 tsp Hot Smoked Paprika and 1 tsp Murray River Flake Salt in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on medium speed until well combined and light and fluffy. Transfer to a piece of parchment, waxed paper or plastic wrap. Roll into a log and refrigerate. Serving ideas: melt on hot corn on the cob. Add to BBQ sauce for glazing ribs. Add to a pot of baked beans just before serving.
