I love garlic butter, it’s delicious on bread, veggies and garlic toast.  This garlic butter has a secret little ingredient, a dash of lemon juice, making it extra yummy!

We make up big batches all of the time so I always have it on hand.  The great thing is that you can actually keep it in the fridge for a couple of weeks or even freeze it!  I take it straight from the freezer to toss with veggies or into mashed potatoes for a quick and delicious addition.  If you’d like to spread it onto bread, you can defrost it in the microwave on very low power for about 15 seconds.

  3. Love this! I freeze it in tablespoon portions and my family eats it on almost everything.

  4. You can also freeze in ice cube trays

  5. How long will this keep after it is made?

  6. This would even be good on a steak or baked potato. I made something similar with lemon zest, crushed red pepper, parsley and butter. I turned out really well. You just mix it all together and form it into a log and put it in the fridge to set.

  7. You said it can be froze, how long can it be ?? I am really going to try this !! I know it is something I would use !!
