Garlic Butter Recipe

Description:  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 recipe.


  • 1 cup butter or margarine

  • 8 cloves of garlic. Use more, if you like it strong.

  • 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley (dried or fresh)

  • 2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (optional)

Preparation Directions:

  1. Put butter or margarine directly into a container.

  2. Mince or crush 8 cloves of garlic. Use more, if you like it strong.

  3. Add garlic to butter, and mix well.

  4. Add chopped parsley and mix together.

  5. Mix in grated parmesan cheese (optional)

  6. Cover container with a lid, and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

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.
