Spread the Love: Compound Butters

Compound butter—merely a mixture of butter and other sweet and savory ingredients—is a simple but sublime way to elevate any meal. Each recipe below begins with one softened stick of the unsalted variety. Poke around your pantry, then churn up something special.

Sriracha-Scallion
Add some heat to sauteed shrimp: 1/3 cup sliced scallions + 4 teaspoons sriracha + 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Herb
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme are poultry's best friend.

Blueberry-Maple
Pancake-perfect topping: 1/4 cup thawed wild blueberries + 2 tablespoons maple syrup + 1 tablespoon blueberry preserves + 1/8 teaspoon salt.

Curry
Spread some joy on a chicken sandwich: 1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger + 1 teaspoon curry powder + 1/2 teaspoon salt + 1/4 teaspoon turmeric. (Toast curry powder and turmeric in a skillet for 2 minutes.)

Honey-Cardamom
Ratchet up a basic biscuit: 2 tablespoons honey + 1 teaspoon lemon zest + 1/2 teaspoon cardamom + 1/8 teaspoon salt.

Smoky Bacon
Build a better BLT: 1/3 cup chopped cooked smoked bacon + 2 teaspoons brown sugar + 1 teaspoon cider vinegar + 1/2 teaspoon each smoked paprika, sweet paprika and chili powder (toasted 2 minutes in a skillet) + 1/2 teaspoon each mustard powder and salt.
