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.
