Homemade Garlic Butter
I made this garlic herb butter for the hasselback garlic cheesy bread recipe. While you can get garlic herb butter from the store, it’s so much easier to make it at home.
The recipe practically takes 10 minutes and you have your homemade garlic herb butter.
As I mentioned, I made it for the garlic cheesy bread, but ended up using it for many more dishes, such as garlic noodles, brushing it on grilled shrimp, or just plain on my morning toast.
It adds a great garlicky and herb flavor and make everything so much better and palatable.
Garlic Butter…endless Possibilities!
The best thing is that garlic butter will keep forever in the fridge, just like your regular butter.
Check out the recipe on how to make this garlic butter, it’s super easy.
Now that I have made it from scratch, I can’t wait to try out different variations of flavored butter…
I get excited thinking of the endless possibilities!

I WOULD LOVE TO MAKE THIS HERB BUTTER IF I COULD GET THE RECIPE. THANK YOU….
The recipe is where the red button is. It says GET RECIPE.
Hello! I’m making this for dinner rolls for Thanksgiving dinner. I am not using fresh garlic but rather minced in jar from grocery store. Could you tell me the amount of minced o would need? Thank you! Barbara
We buy a version of this but it’s not available where we are right now, so I might try my hand at making it again.
Our favorite way to use it is to get a foil pan, coat the bottom with butter, add tater tots and put more butter on top, then add the pan to the grill. Turn the tots over individually part way through and enjoy!
I didn’t say it was healthy ;)
I added more garlic, great recipe though. Excellent with fish, steak or on bread. Use your imagination.
Yes yes more garlic is better. Thanks for trying my garlic herb butter recipe.
Thank you, Rasa Malaysia, for providing this very easy recipe—it really has so many uses! If fresh parsley and garlic are not available, dried parsley flakes and garlic granules can be substituted, plus the shelf life may even stretch a bit longer if stored in an air-tight container. Bon appétit and happy cooking!
Can you freeze the garlic butter, and for how long?
Yes you can freeze it for a few weeks.
I am curious as why do we need to beat the butter. Can you explain? =)
Make it fluffy.
can you use dried parsley as a substitute for the fresh? how much would you add then? can’t wait to make it, thanks so much!
Yes you can just a few shakes, up to you. :)
So easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing!
how long will this last in the fridge?
A couple of weeks. :)
