Garlic butter is one of those things that is so easy make, can flavour up a lot of foods and yet is something we often just buy in the supermarket. And even though you can get a few different types in the supermarket (with peppercorns for example), there’s nothing quite like being able to be completely in control of the flavour and avoid having to add/eat any unnecessary unpronounceable ingredients. You can go creative and start adding bold flavours like kurkuma or cumin but you can also keep it basic with just a little twist. Not too long ago I hosted a big barbecue in my garden and on every barbecue I host, I always have loads of French bread with some garlic butter that you can either eat cold or grill shortly on the barbecue for an even better result. Even though I served it with some French bread, a lot of my friends also tried it on some of the barbecue meat and simply loved it!
Unfortunately it doesn’t look like there will be much barbecuing going on in Ireland any time soon, but not to worry: you can also use your butter for some garlic bread to go along with some spaghetti bolognese or to flavour up some pan grilled steak or even to slide into some oven grilled potatoes!
