Compound Butter Video Transcript

Hi, I’m Chef Ted, and I’m here in the Rada Cutlery kitchen, and today I’m going to be showing you how to put together compound butters. I’m going to start with a pound of softened butter. With compound butter, you can do a theme. You can do a Greek compound butter, you can do Italian, you can do a southwestern, anything you want. They’re great to put on bread, fish, chicken, a scoop on top of a steak after it’s grilled, it makes a great way to accent any type of meal.

I like using the standard seasoning that I use. I put a little bit in there and a little sugar to help things mellow over. You can use salt and pepper. Whatever seasonings you like. I’m going to put a little Italian seasoning in this one. I’m going to prepare some garlic. I’m going to know the sides off here. What I do to open them is put the flatter sides down, take the side of a chef knife, pop it. When I chop up my garlic I always add a little salt. There’s two theories behind it. One theory is that it adds a little coarseness so that it chops up better. The other is that it absorbs the essential garlic oils coming out of it. We can also add just a little bit of sugar on it, takes a bit of the bitter edge out. Then I just start mincing away.

Now I’m going to take the Rada Cook’s Spoon and stir all the garlic and the salt and Italian seasoning. I’m going to use one of the Rada Stoneware bake sheets with store-bought flaky biscuits, throw them in here. These are just baked potatoes. What I’ve done is taken them, used one of the serving forks, speared holes all the way around, wiped it in olive oil, and baked it off until they’re perfectly done. So I’m going to take the baked potato, make some cuts, squeeze like so, take a spoonful of that compound butter, and that’s all you’re going to need.

So the biscuits are out of the oven. They’re nice and layered and flaky. You take the party spreader with some of that compound butter we made. There you go. Compound butter on potatoes and biscuits. Works great on any protein like steak or fish. Enjoy!
