- 5 oz. 140 g butter
- ½ cup (11⁄3 oz.) 120 ml (40 g) shredded Parmesan cheese
- ½ tsp ½ tsp salt
- ¼ tsp ¼ tsp ground black pepper
- Let the butter reach room temperature.
- Mix all ingredients with a fork in a small bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.

- The butter will keep for at least one week and may also be stored in the freezer.
Try this butter with other sharp grated cheese... like asiago. And for ultra-smooth with a punch of flavor, go for the original — Parmigiano-Reggiano, the king of cheese.
