For the Compound Butter

  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened & cut into cubes

  2. Lay out an 8-inch sheet of plastic wrap on the counter and place the compound butter in the middle.
  3. Using your hands, form butter into a rectangular shape. Use the plastic wrap to roll the butter into a log and twist the ends to secure the butter.
