A small food processor is PERFECT for a job like this! It is a cute mini version of the real thing that I use for smaller projects such as these compound butters, grinding graham crackers, and similar tasks. This link will take you to said adorable mini food processor. You can also use a standard food processor to make this Portabella Mushroom and Red Wine Compound Butter or mix all the ingredients by hand in a small bowl.
I love making compound butters for holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. They are also a fun addition to dinner parties and gatherings. Check out our other flavored butter recipes here and make a compound butter bar where your guests can choose different flavors! The butters are easy to make in advance and can be kept in the refrigerator or freezer to be used as needed.
This Portabella Mushroom and Red Wine Compound Butter can be refrigerated to make flavored butter coins. The coins are perfect to put on top of steaks or chicken for a fun presentation. If I am serving the butter for bread, I keep it soft by not refrigerating it (or letting it get to room temperature when ready to serve) and serving in a small bowl.
