Basil Butter

Basil Butter....who would have thought? Okay, so maybe all of you knew about this wonderful topping, but I didn't! I was just browsing on looking for a recipe with fresh basil. My cute friend Teddy grows it and I had a ton to use up! I found this recipe from Paula Deen, of course 'butter' is involved, and it was wonderful. You were supposed to top grilled chicken with this basil butter, which we did and loved. However, we then added it to our fresh corn, and O MY GOSH! It was great. I mean awesome. I mean great and awesome and so much more!

I've got a little basil plant, this looks like a perfect use for it.

I've got to admit, the name sounds a little weird, but then I remember how much I love honey butter, so basil butter must be as good! I just won't put it on scones!
