Spicy Buffalo Butter

August 2nd? Where has the summer gone? Besides the weather and fun, the thing I will miss the most about summer is the fresh veggies!! Sweet corn is one of my favorites. Herb butters are perfect to enhance the flavor of the corn.  Tim couldn't get enough of this the first time we had it for dinner. 






Spicy Buffalo Butter

1/2 cup butter (1 stick), at room temperature
2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon Frank's Red Hot Sauce or other vinegar based hot sauce
1 tablespoon chopped chives

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. Lay out a large piece of plastic wrap on a clean counter. Spoon the butter mixture onto the bottom third of plastic wrap, then roll into a log. Refrigerate for one hour, or until firm.

  • Room temperature butter is key to making flavored butters. Use unsalted butter so you can control your salty flavor.
  • Softened butter makes it easy to fold your flavoring ingredients into the butter. To make the butter logs, simply spoon the butter mixture onto the bottom third of a piece of plastic wrap, then shaped into rolls, twisting the ends of the plastic wrap as you roll.
  • Chill each log for at least 1 hour or freeze for 20-30 minutes for the logs to take shape.
  • Flavored butters taste amazing on anything from vegetables to pasta, chicken, beef and fish.

  2. Happy Summer! I used corn cut from the cob in my salad this evening-delicious.
    Your buffalo butter would be delicious on so many dishes but grilled corn on the cob would be the bomb.
    Thanks for sharing this with us.

  4. This sounds like it would taste wonderful on hot corn on the cob! Of course, I could put blue cheese on anything :)

  5. You know the BSU Broncos play on "the blue," so I've been looking for a fun way to use blue cheese for our first tailgate party. I know this will be a win-win with my crowd with a cooler filled with hot corn on the cob. Thanks Julie
