Truffle and Herb Butter

Serve this delicately flavored truffle and herb butter on filet mignon, prime rib, pork chops, chicken, vegetables, or brunch eggs. Not only is this herb butter incredibly delicious, but it is an easy recipe to make that requires just a few ingredients.

Truffles can be expensive, but this truffle and herb butter recipe calls for truffle salt instead. Typically, you can purchase a jar of it for around $20USD, which is far less expensive than purchasing a black truffle! Keep in mind that a little goes a long way. You will only use 1-2 teaspoons of salt for this recipe. Look for truffle salt at your local grocery store, specialty stores, or online.

Ingredients:

  • Unsalted butter
  • Fresh oregano, basil, and rosemary
  • Garlic
  • Truffle salt
  • Black pepper
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)

How to Make Truffle and Herb Butter:

  • Combine unsalted butter with truffle salt, chopped basil, oregano, rosemary, garlic, black pepper, and pepper flakes. Taste for salt content and add more truffle salt if needed.
  • Scoop butter onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Use the plastic wrap to form the truffle-herb butter mixture into an evenly shaped log, or square block. Please note: If it is more convenient, place the butter in an airtight jar and scoop our how much you need.
  • Twist ends of plastic wrap and fold under. 
  • Place into the refrigerator for 1-2 hours until the butter has hardened.

Using Truffle Butter:

  • To use: unwrap the plastic and cut off the desired amount of truffle and herb butter. Place onto cooked steaks, prime rib, chops, chicken, and vegetables. You can also use this compound butter for eggs.
  • Wrap butter tightly and keep it in the refrigerator for 10-14 days.

Substitutions:

Not all of us like the same herbs, so if you are struggling with the thought of adding rosemary or basil to this truffle and herb butter, don’t worry, we have solutions!

  1. Basil: substitute with oregano. Instead of using 2 teaspoons of oregano already called for in the recipe, use 1 tablespoon instead.
  2. Rosemary: Use fresh thyme instead.
  3. Oregano: substitute with fresh thyme or basil.
  4. Vegan option: I recommend using vegan butter instead of dairy butter. You can also use a good quality coconut oil for this truffle and herb butter recipe. I have not tried coconut oil, but vegan butter will often stand up to recipe conversions. If you try this recipe with coconut oil, please drop us a note and tell us how it worked out.
