Plenty of leftovers were the unforeseen bonus. Chive butter rocks on so many foods. My BLT sandwich for Saturday lunch got a big swath of the stuff. I have never eaten mayo on my BLT's (which has elicited some close to threatening responses from various folks-especially diner servers), so I was delighted to come up with this alternative. Pork chops on the grill? Yup, you guessed it. I brushed on a little chive butter right at the end of grill time and let it melt over the top. Ok, so, I DID NOT put it on my raspberry whole grain pancakes on Sunday morning......but.........my favorite use for chive butter thus far? I fried two eggs in a big gob of it, sliced a garden tomato on the side, then ate it with a fat slice of whole grain bread toasted and spread with, oh yeah, more chive butter.
*this was totally staged for the photo, and might just be a bit more butter than even
I would want to eat on a slice of bread. But, I might try it just to make sure.*
Then reap the benefits of leftovers.
