How Long Does Garlic Butter Last In The Fridge
Garlic butter will store in the fridge for around a week. Now if you want to keep it longer you can freeze your garlic butter.
How To Freeze Garlic Butter
Put in an airtight container and store for up to three months. Slice and serve or even freeze in single servings like ice cube trays to toss in when you are cooking.
Now you can also toss in the microwave for around 5-10 second intervals to thaw it faster if you want it to spread onto something vs be melted.
Is Garlic Butter Good For You
Garlic butter is, of course, a tasty way to add more nutrients to your diet. You will find it is loaded with vitamin E, A, and even K. It is great for helping to boost your immune system and get rid of bacteria in the body. But with all things, it is good in moderation, as the butter does contain saturated fats.
Can I Use Margarine In Replace of Butter In Garlic Butter Recipe
You will find that margarine just doesn’t offer the same flavor or texture as a true butter will. So I hate to say it for anyone wanting to swap out margarine for butter, but it is not going to work well for you. I recommend buying real butter for this recipe.
Variations to Garlic Butter
The best part about this recipe is you can get creative. Don’t have an herb, then play around and find herbs that work for you. You can really create almost any flavor pairing in this garlic butter. I loved the mix of rosemary, thyme, and parsley but feel free to try and see what other flavors you want to test out.
Can You Add Cheese To Garlic Butter Recipe
Yes! I think romano cheese would be a great addition to your garlic butter. It would give you a nice flavor that offers a whole new level of flavor. So if you are a cheese lover consider mixing in some. If you don’t like cheese, you can leave it out and this garlic butter recipe will still be incredible.
