The French create “compound butters”—seasoned with herbs, spices, wine, and other flavors—to quickly season meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables.

Add the butter and remaining seasonings and mix thoroughly. For a smooth paste, blend in a little olive oil, a tsp. at a time, until the ingredients hold together.

Wow, some great ideas there!

One of the ones I like is very easy - 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, very soft, mixed with a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce and some garlic powder, about 1/2 teaspoon. Refrigerate til firmed up, then roll into a log and wrap in plastic wrap. Cut off a slice about 1/2" thick to melt atop the steak of your choice. MMMM.

I will definitely be trying some of the combos you posted! Thanks for taking the time to do that!

Here ya go-- (These recipes are from my files-- this is from years of archiving.)

**Here's my tweak-- sometimes I'll use a little more Heavy Whipping cream in the recipe-- it makes the pancakes *much* softer and pancake like. It takes them a little longer to cook-- don't be tempted to turn up the heat.**

Piggy Puff Pancakes

Pork rinds- (smash/crush until almost powdery) ฝ BAG, ABOUT 1 CUP
2 eggs
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 capful of vanilla extract (pure is best)
2-3 packets Splenda, Sweet-N-Low etc, or a DROP of Liquid splenda (depending on your sweet tooth)
cinnamon for sprinkling
Butter for cooking

Whip together-eggs, cream, sweetener, vanilla (like you would for french toast)

Stir in pork rinds and let them absorb the egg mixture.

Heat butter in skillet over meadium heat. Drop large spoonfuls of mixture in butter, when it turns slighty brown and is "set" flip over and brown the other side.

Serve with syrup, jam, or sprinkle with cinnamon.

Basically this is French Toast made with Pork rinds instead of bread.. tastes much like french toast with bacon.

**
Stormy's Waffles That Make You Weep With Joy

Don't be turned off by the pork rinds. You CANNOT tell that's what's in them.

Stormy's Waffles That Make You Weep With Joy! 1-serving (2 servings)
I started with the recipe for the French "toast" and changed it ever so slightly.

2 large eggs (4)
1 Tbls. heavy cream (2)
1 Tbls. water (2)
.5 Tsp. vanilla extract (1)
1 Pkt. Splenda (2)
1/8 Tsp. ground cinnamon (1/4)
1 Tbls. melted butter (2)
1 to 1-1/2 ounces of crushed pork rinds (2 or 3)

I used my food processor to get the pork rinds down to a fine, almost powdery consistency.

Beat the eggs then add the cream, water, and vanilla extract and beat some more. Mix the Splenda with the cinnamon and then add that to the eggs. (Mixing the cinnamon with the Splenda before adding helps to keep the cinnamon from clumping up as much.) When well blended mix in the ground pork rinds.

Let the mixture sit for a couple of minutes until it thickens. Then stir and check the consistency. It should be quite thick, but not too thick to spoon easily. If too thick, add a little water. If too thin, add a little bit more pork rinds. Just before you're ready to put into waffle iron, stir in the melted butter.

I have a "Belgian Waffle" baker and it makes two waffles at a time -- each about 4X4 inches. I brushed the top and bottom of the waffle baker with melted butter, then I spooned about 1/4 to 1/3 of a cup of batter on each side of the bottom half of the baker and used a spoon to spread the batter out a little. Then I closed the top of the waffle baker. It took about 5 or 6 minutes to bake the two waffles. With the recipe doubled, I had enough batter to make a total of four waffles, each about 4X4 inches.

If you have a "big" waffle iron, you will probably make just two with the doubled amount of batter. These waffles firmed up and browned just like "real" waffles.

I served them with sugar free maple syrup and more butter (of course!)

With a couple of strips of bacon, this is an awesome breakfast -- at about 2-1/2 carbs per waffle - including the syrup! Without the syrup (mine has about 4 carbs per 1/4 cup), the carb count would be about 1-1/2 carbs per waffle.

If any of you live in the south and have ever eaten at the Waffle House restaurant, they have a specialty pecan waffle. I think this recipe would be absolutely incredible with 1/2 cup of chopped pecans added to the batter. And the pecans would only add about 1-1/2 effective carbs to each waffle. Still quite a carb bargain!

**

Note: The above recipe can also be used for just plain old pancakes-- and with a jusdicious amount of thinning, I suspect, crepes.

OK, I tried three butters today and put them in the fridge for use thru out the week.

bacon butter : MADE ME SWOOOON, it was so good, I added it to sauteed shrimp and a side of spaghetti squash, yummy. I put a few drops of the bacon grease in there too

Italian butter, gosh it smells so good, I"m going to do Italian spaghetti squash dinner later will use this butter.

adobo suace butter: I can't wait to add this to any protein, I'll probably have it with chicken later this week or over eggs.


I"m going to see how having this butter affects my weight loss, I mostly use Olive oil for cooking, I'll let u guys know.

Thanks so much for taking the time to post these recipes. I have been looking for some flavored butter recipes after seeing some in a specialty store. They were incredibly expensive and I almost picked up a package, then put it back, knowing there had to be some recipes for them somewhere. Now I have found them !!! Thanks again
