freshly ground black pepper
This is an awsome recipe, every place I take it, I am asked for the recipe, and it freezes well, so I can have it when I want it!
This was great baked on a french stick and served alongside pizza...just needed some salt that's all.
This is similar to my recipe for basil butter except that I add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice or a little lemon zest and use either white pepper or sometimes red pepper flakes. The butter really is delicious served with fresh corn on the cob.
This butter is absolutely delicious! We made it for our 4th of July picnic to use on our corn on the cob, and everyone loved it! I think I may become addicted to this! I put it on my baked potato last night and practically inhaled it! I'm sure it would be delicious on bread too.
I made batches of this butter when my Basil was in season, and gave it out to my friends. They all loved it. You can use it to put under the skin of a chicken roaster, over veggies, over pasta, and on bread.
This was really good! I halved the recipe, and used it to make garlic bread. I spread it on some split Kaiser rolls and baked at 375 until it was nicely browned, it was fabulous!
This is amazing on fresh steamed Brussels Sprouts!
Love this! Great way to make good use of my huge basil plant! I put tablespoonfulls on a cookie sheet & freeze - then transfer to freezer bag for future use. We add to corn, pasta, Texas toast, etc. Thanks for such a great recipe!
