In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make a lovely and tasty Herb Butter, using flat leaf parsley, sweet basil, and oregano. You can use it on fresh bread, or bread that is hot out of the oven, or on toasted bread. You can also spread it on French Bread, Italian Bread, and other specialty breads, and heat it in the oven. It is showy and delicious!

Ingredients (This is 1/2- recipe):

¼ cup butter, softened to room temperature
(Note: the herbs listed below are fresh herbs. You may substitute dry herbs in place of them, but use only 1/3 as much of the dried herbs.)
½ tablespoon flat-leaf Italian parsley, minced
½ tablespoon fresh sweet basil, minced
½ tablespoon fresh oregano, minced

In a small mixing bowl, mix ¼ cup softened butter with the indicated amounts of flat-leaf parsley, sweet basil, and oregano. Mix until the herbs are evenly distributed throughout the butter. Place herb butter in a small ramekin and chill. Remove herb butter from the refrigerator and soften before spreading on bread. You may spread it on a baked loaf of bread that has been cut lengthwise and place it in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.

It will be crispy and gorgeous on top, but soft inside. You may also slice your loaf of bread and toast the slices in a 375 degree (F) oven for 10 minutes, then spread individual pieces with herb butter, as desired. Either way, it is a real treat, and looks very nice with a special meal! I hope you enjoy it! –Betty
