Parmesan butter

Parmesan and butter together: the ultimate dairy duet. This simple keto combination is equal parts salty and creamy. Fabulous with both meat dishes and vegetarian meals. It’s a taste bud dance party... cha cha cha!

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Let the butter reach room temperature.
  2. Mix all ingredients with a fork in a small bowl. Set aside for 15 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.
  3. Serve the butter as a condiment and let it melt over meat, chicken, fish or vegetables.
  4. The butter will keep for at least one week and may also be stored in the freezer.

Tip!

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.

    This recipe is absolutely delicious. I made it today and put my portion on top of my scrambled egg. I can highly recommend this butter.

    Not good for vegetarians I'm afraid unless it's an Italian hard cheese (which contains egg) that is suitable for vegetarians. Parmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan) always uses calf rennet in the production which would not be suitable for vegetarians, so important to check to make sure that it is suitable for vegetarians before purchase.

    Absolutely Shan. I get so annoyed with restaurants including parmesan on vegetarian options. It is never vegetarian - it can't be as the patented recipe states it must use calf rennet! Pecorino on the other hand is often vegetarian (check the label) and is delicious in place of parmesan :-)

    Loved this butter. I added some cayenne pepper. So good!
