“You will have more than enough of the herb butter, but it can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks or frozen up to 6 months. You can also use it on grilled steaks or as a spread for bread. I also highly recommend using it to make Cheese-Crusted Flat Bread--replace butter seasoning mix listed and top with shredded cheese.”
