• 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste


  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine the softened butter, minced garlic, chopped parsley, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  2. Taste the garlic butter and adjust the seasoning if necessary, adding more salt or pepper according to your preference.
  3. Once seasoned to your liking, transfer the garlic butter to a serving dish or shape it into a log using plastic wrap or parchment paper for easy slicing.
  4. You can use the garlic butter immediately or refrigerate it for later use. If refrigerating, allow it to come to room temperature before using to soften it again.
  5. Enjoy your homemade garlic butter on bread, as a spread for sandwiches, or to flavor cooked vegetables, pasta, seafood, or steak.

Feel free to adjust the quantities of garlic, parsley, salt, and pepper to suit your taste preferences. Enjoy your delicious homemade garlic butter!
