Stand mixer Sunday: Compound butter

Ever been to a fancy restaurant where they say your steak or lobster tail will be served with a compound butter? Don't be fooled, it's super simple to make in your stand mixer in 10 minutes.
Start with 3/4 of a stick of softened butter. Then add a handful of chopped rosemary and whatever other herbs you have on hand. I used a pinch of garlic salt along with veggie flakes and onion powder. Using the paddle attachment, I mixed the butter and herbs together. Then, scrape out the newly mixed butter onto a piece of wax or parchment paper and form into a log.

Freeze for one hour, then slice onto rolls, lobster tails or any other fancy dish. This way you get butter and herbs in one fellow swoop. Classy.
