Garlic butter may be best known for making Garlic Bread. But, you’ll find plenty of other uses for garlic butter. Try it on steaks, chicken, pork, and even seafood. You will want to double the size of this garlic butter recipe. And, don’t be afraid to use more garlic than is called for in the recipe.
Did you know? Workers building the Egyptian Pyramids were given garlic because it was believed to give people strength and endurance.

2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (optional)
Put butter or margarine directly into a container.
Mince or crush 8 cloves of garlic. Use more, if you like it strong.

Tip: We like to add parmesan cheese to some recipes, and not others. For example, we add parmesan cheese on top of the garlic butter when making garlic bread. We don’t use parmesan cheese when using garlic butter to baste or marinade meats. It’s a matter of personal taste.
