Herb Butter for Thanksgiving Dinner
Thanksgiving and other big dinners can feel overwhelming with a long list of things to make. I love homemade rolls and have been making my World’s Best Potato Rolls for years but if you don’t have the time (or energy) to make homemade rolls don’t worry about it!

How to make Whipped Herb Butter
To make this recipe super simple, you’ll need the help of a food processor. If you don’t have one, that’s fine but you’ll just spend a few extra minutes chopping. If you do have a food processor, throw all the ingredients (besides the butter) into it and let it finely chop everything for you. Then all you need to do is mix that into the butter! Done! If you want this to be whipped butter, use a whisk attachment of a stand mixer or hand mixture to combine the butter and whip it for a few minutes!
We sprinkled a little extra Italian seasoning on top for color.
What do I use Herb Butter for?
Herb butter is most commonly used on dinner rolls and steaks. But you can use it wherever you would use normal butter in a savory context. For example, on grilled cheese! Spread some of this onto the bread before it hits the pan and WOW will this add a ton of flavor to a basic grilled cheese sandwich! You can also use it to make your pizza crust even more delicious or melted over cooked veggies.
I cannot wait for Thanksgiving! Parker (my husband) will have a few days off from school, we’ll smoke a turkey and maybe get to sleep in a little with baby Stella let’s us! But either way we will be well fed with pie, stuffing and this garlic parmesan butter on warm rolls!
