Garlic & Herb Butter

I love flavored butters, oils, spreads, and more! This looks so incredible, anyone would think you'd spent time slaving in the kitchen to make such a (simple) delicacy. All you need is 5 minutes, 4 ingredients, and the ability to take all the credit for this simple treat.

1/4 lb. butter (or margarine - I won't tell) ($.40)
1 tsp. basil ($.05)
1/4 tsp. oregano ($.05)
1 T. garlic powder ($.10)
1/4 tsp. salt ($.05)
1/2 tsp. Italian flat-leaf parsley, optional

Soften butter, then mix well all ingredients. Refrigerate.

Serve hot as a dipping sauce for breadsticks or serve chilled and sliced.

Yields = 12 servings
Cost: $.65
Cost per serving: $.05

1. Use on grilled cheese sammie for a little kick
2. Perfect on baked potatoes
3. Saute shrimp for instant shrimp scampi - just garnish with parsley
4. Toss with roasted veggies or pasta
5. Use in mashed potatoes
6. Serve with corn bread, baguettes, or your favorite artisan bread
