Whipped Herb Butter was a great addition to my Thanksgiving spread. The truth is, adding some sea salt and fresh herbs to butter will impress your guests for any holiday or special occasion gathering. You can even use a mini scoop to make individual servings and treat your guests to the same high-end service they might get at a fancy pants restaurant.
This batch of herb butter only takes 5 minutes to make, even though it seems much fancier. Of course, that doesn’t account for the time it takes to get your chilled butter down to a softened state.
Whipped Thyme Butter
2 sticks butter
2 tablespoons milk
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh thyme
1 tablespoon sea salt
Soften butter to room temperature. Once soft, add into a bowl. Using a hand mixer on medium, mix butter for 2 minutes. Add milk, salt and thyme and mix for another 2-3 minutes until butter becomes a soft, fluffy texture.
