Browned Butter with Fresh Herbs
This recipe will show you a quick and simple way to make browned butter? A variety of herbs are the perfect addition. Browned butter is also great for baking.
Yield: 8 ounces
- 8 ounces butter
- 1/2 cup herbs sage, oregano, thyme, cut into ribbons
Put the butter in a heavy bottom saucepan or fry pan. You can make as little as one or two tablespoons.
Cook butter on med-high heat.
The butter will get all bubbly and frothy.
Once the bubbles stop and there is just foam watch it closely as this is when the browning occurs.
When you see bits of brown (looks like bits of browned flour) appear in the bottom of the pan, add in the herbs.
The herbs should be chopped or cut into ribbons before adding to the butter.
Remove from heat and serve.
Red pepper flakes, slivered almonds, and sesame seeds are great additions to the butter if you are going to use it on vegetables.
