#Italian #Herbed #butter and Cheese#Last week my buddy and blog owner Peter over at feedyoursoul2.com  made a fantastic Pesto Compound Butter that made me want to add our recipe for Italian Herb Butter and Cheese on the blog for all of you– I don’t know why I hadn’t already done so. I have to say I wish my photos were as good as his–I am currently saving for a new DSLR camera to take better pictures for you all.

 

This recipe will be used today on our Herb Crusted Ribeye Roast for Christmas dinner tonight, and you’re going to love that blog post. I can promise you that–that’s for a later day and a New Blog Post to come for you.

Below you will find a super easy, versatile, and storage safe recipe for Italian Herb Butter and Cheese with simple instructions to guide you in making your own delicious Herb Butter and Cheese instead of buying expensive store brands.

 

 

Italian Herbed butter and Cheese

  • Two sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 of a cup of freshly grated romano cheese
  • Two tablespoons of  scallions greens only
  • Two tablespoons of  fresh basil
  • One tablespoon of fresh rosemary
  • One tablespoon of fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Two teaspoons of  garlic
  • One teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper

 

 

 

Directions

  1. Combine the butter, romano cheese, minced scallion greens, fresh basil, rosemary, flat-leaf parsley, minced garlic, kosher salt, and freshly ground pepper in the bowl, thoroughly combine all ingredients until smooth.

 

 

 

Log directions

  1. Place the Italian herb butter and cheese on a piece of waxed or parchment paper.
  2. Shape the mixture into a log by rolling it in the paper and lightly smoothing it with fingers to help mold.
  3. Wrap the log tightly and refrigerate for up to 2 months.
  4. If storing for longer than a month or two, put the wax or parchment paper-wrapped herb butter into a freezer bag and freeze for up six months. The herb butter will still be safe to eat up to 6 months after that, but the quality will continue to diminish.
  5. Transfer the frozen herb butter to the refrigerator 24 hours before you intend to use it.
