Hotel Butter

Hotel Butter is a flavored butter that you can use for many different things.  Have you ordered a steak at a restaurant and it comes with it on it?  It really makes it tasty.  I remember learning how to make it in Home Economics class in high school! It's delicious on steak, but you can also use it as a spread on french bread, on baked potatoes, stirred into rice, on any vegetable, or on chicken or fish.  You can just make it and keep it in your freezer to use and add flavor whenever you want.  It is yummy!

Hotel Butter
1 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup minced parsley
Zest from a lemon
Juice from a lemon 
2 cloves garlic, minced or smashed
Salt and pepper or Seasoning salt to taste
Red Pepper flakes, optional and to taste

Place the softened butter in your mixer bowl.  Add the other ingredients and whip until fluffy.  Lay  out a long piece of aluminum foil, then a piece of plastic wrap on top of it.  Scoop the butter onto the plastic wrap in a strip down one side of the plastic wrap.  Roll the butter in the wrap and foil into a tube and twist the ends to seal it.  Put it in the freezer for several hours before serving.  When ready to serve, just unwrap and cut slices.  Rewrap and store in the freezer.
