Sun-Dried Tomato-Basil Butter
By Paula Deen
- Prep time: 5 minutes
- Servings: 16
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil), finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped
- 1 clove garlic minced
Stir together all ingredients in a small bowl. Place on a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap and roll into a 1 ½- to 2-inch log. Wrap and refrigerate until ready to use. Cut into ¼-inch-thick slices to serve.
Perfect Pairings: Toss with your favorite hot pasta and add a handful of grated Parmesan for a quick dinner or side dish. Baste your favorite kabobs with the butter as they grill. Smear on baguette slices or focaccia. Add some oomph to rice or other grains.
