This delicious charred green onion herb butter is delicious. You'll want to spread it or mix it into everything!

Compound butter is a mix of butter and supplementary ingredients. They are used to enhance flavor in various dishes, similar to a sauce. The best part about them is that they can be purchased in your local grocery store, but also you can easily make them at home too. This herb butter is one of my recent favs but I’ve also made so many variations of compound butter for you to try here.

Ingredient Notes:

Butter: I like to use unsalted butter because I don’t feel salted butter is necessary, however, you could really use either or. You can even swap butter for plant-based butter if you wanted.

Green Onion: Did you know green onions can help reduce inflammation and boost your immunity? They are actually so good for you and so easy to throw into a salad or recipe.
