Garlic Butter Recipe

Every single one of those words sounds delicious to me.  Love it all.

Garlic butter has a multitude of uses. Just spreading it on bread is delicious.  Adding it to a pasta is decadent.  Rub it on some chicken and it’s sinful. It makes a regular boring G rated grilled cheese sandwich 50 shades happier….:)

The trickiest part of this recipe is the smashing of the roasted garlic.  It’s not as hard as it sounds.  In fact, it’s kind of fun.  A fork works great to smash with (as seen below), or you can use the side of a big knife.

Anyway, making garlic butter is an incredibly simple process.  But it really makes a difference in anything you make with butter.  Roasted garlic has a sweeter flavor than regular garlic, so the taste of this butter is like nothing you’ve had before.

Smoked Roasted Garlic Butter

Adding sweet roasted garlic to butter is like adding peanut butter to jelly. Perfect for pasta, bread and anything else you would add butter to!


  • 2 heads of smoked roasted garlic butter
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • salt and pepper


  1. Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of the heads of the garlic on a cutting board.. If it doesn't squeeze easily, then you can just peel back the skins.
  2. Let the butter come to room temperature in a gladware container.
  3. Chop the garlic as much as you can, then sprinkle a tiny amount of salt on the garlic. If you let the salt sit on the garlic for a few minutes, it helps the garlic to break down and you can mush it up with a spoon or the side of a large knife.
  4. Scrape the garlic in the butter and mix very well.
  5. Refrigerate until you're ready to use. This should last at least 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
