Bacon and butter. You really can’t go wrong. We loved eating it slathered on grilled corn – next we’ll have to try it with cornbread! How would you eat bacon chive butter?
1/2 c. butter
3 pieces bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 tbsp. chives
1/4 tsp. sea salt
Cook the bacon per package instructions. Once cooked, set aside to cool. Place the butter into a mixing bowl. Finely chop the chives then mix the chives into the butter. Pat the extra grease off of the bacon with a paper towel. Using a knife, roughly chop the bacon until you get nice, little bacon bits. Mix the bacon bits into the butter.
Pack the butter into a ramekin or roll into a log using plastic wrap. Let it cool in the fridge for 30-60 minutes. Before serving, I like to garnish it with a sprinkle of chopped chives.
