Roasted Garlic Butter Spread

February 18, 2011  •  Condiments, Popular

On boy, I’ve done it now! This is delicious. This is easy. And unfortunately, this is addictive.That’s the only explanation I can give for why I had two pieces of bread with this butter on it for lunch (with leftover Pasta e Fagioli) and then decided I needed a third piece of buttered bread for a mid-afternoon snack.Use my technique for easy garlic roasting on the stove, then whip up some butter. A nice slather of this on some hearty bread is the perfect accompaniment for so many things: chili, a bowl of soup, Spaghetti Bolognese, lasagna, paella – the list seems endless. I warn you – make this when you’re serving a crowd so there’s not too much leftover or you’ll spend the next day sneaking it whenever you can!

Roasted Garlic Butter Spread
Yields about 1 cup

1/2 cup roasted garlic cloves
1/2 cup salted butter, softened

Mash the garlic with a fork, then mash together with the softened butter. Slather on nice crusty bread and enjoy.

    This is as perfect an alternative to garlic bread as ever I’ve seen. I’ll bet you don;t want any left over… this is clearly an addiction food! Lovely.
