Top 12 Flavored Butter Recipes | KetoDiet Blog (2024)

Flavored butter, aka compound butter, is an amazing low-carb condiment and perfect for those following the ketogenic diet. It's one of the best ways to add both great flavour and healthy fats to any meal, including steak, chicken, fish, roasted vegetables and even low-carb pancakes. It takes just a few minutes to prepare and will last for several months if frozen.

The basic ingredient is butter mixed with herbs, spices, or other ingredients such as cheese, nuts or even berries. If you can't eat butter, swap it with ghee, lard, duck fat and even virgin coconut oil.

Tip: Flavored butter makes a delicious and unique gift! Simply wrap it in parchment paper, twist the ends, attach a ribbon and a gift tag.

Method

Make sure all the ingredients have reached room temperature before mixing them. In a medium bowl, mix the softened butter and your preferred spices, herbs and other ingredients. Spoon the butter on a piece of parchment paper. Wrap and roll to create a log shape.Top 12 Flavored Butter Recipes | KetoDiet Blog (1)
Twist the ends of the paper in the opposite direction to seal. Store the butter in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for up to 6 months. If you decide to freeze it, it helps if you slice it into as many servings as needed.Top 12 Flavored Butter Recipes | KetoDiet Blog (2)
