Garlic Parmesan Butter is one of those things that I didn’t consider worthy of posting here until a friend wondered what I was doing to my butter. It’s a simple process, and it surprised me that she’d never done this for herself. Butter is allowed to soften at room temperature before garlic, herbs, and parmesan cheese are mixed into it. Garlic Parmesan Butter can turn plain bread into garlic bread, and any grilled sandwich into something extraordinary.
You know that we love beans here at Patty Cake’s Pantry, and we are always looking for new ways to prepare them. This recipe is similar to beans and greens, but it uses leeks in place of greens, and Italian seasoning, and parsley, in place of the red pepper flakes. The result is a simple and delicious vegetable side dish that is a perfect accompaniment to any meat entrée or is delicious on its own.
