Adding a flavored butter to corn on the cob is such an easy way to change up your side dish.
Once you start making compound butters, there really is no going back to plain butter. It’s so fun to change up a recipe with a simple addition of a flavored butter. I’ll make up a whole bunch of them and then store them in the freezer in smaller packages (about the size of half a stick) until I’m ready to use one.
Use them on steaks, chicken, on side dishes, vegetables, but my favorite is on corn on the cob. Using Buttery, the ZAK corn on the cob butter spreader, to butter the corn keeps hands clean and makes sure there is the perfect amount of butter on the corn.
