Easy Basil Butter

Basil, basil everywhere!
It's one of the easiest herbs
to grow. I have it planted in
my garden and a few pots on
the porch & the kitchen windowsill! 

I trimmed some plants
the other day and made
some tasty basil butter.

Easy Basil Butter

1½ cups of lightly packed fresh basil
1    cup of salted butter
 ½  teaspoon of lemon juice
1    clove of garlic, minced (or less, to taste)
   teaspoon ground black pepper (optional)

In a food processor, chop basil. 
Add remaining ingredients and 
process until smooth.
Keep refrigerated.

Use as you would any flavored butter.

I slathered it on Italian bread & baked it 
@375 for about 10 mins. Then sprinkled
it with grated Parmesan cheese.

then we used some on the steak & hot veggies too!
