I make this herb butter for a number of things. I’ll put it under the skin in my turkey or chicken before I roast them. I spread it on bread for sandwiches, especially turkey sandwiches. It’s also great on toast with eggs. And you can melt it and brush it on your pizza dough, especially the edges, before you bake pizza. If at all possible, use fresh herbs, their flavor is more robust than dried herbs.
