Taylor, Taylor Takes a Taste

Compound butters are an easy way to pack tons of flavor into a simple, versatile spread. They are perfect for spreading onto grilled corn, adding to a steak, or placing in a baked potato. They can be added to any savory dish that you would normally add butter to. This sun-dried tomato compound butter is so good that you can spread it directly on pita chips!

The beautiful orange color is a colorful addition to any summer plate. After making, store in a refrigerator, but remember to bring to room temperature before serving.
