I have always been a fan of flavored butters. Â This Sun-Dried Tomato Roasted Garlic Compound Butter is packed full of flavor to pump up any bread!
I was inspired by an a-ma-zing local restaurant that served a tasty reddish colored butter with their house made bread. Â It was sooooo good. Â I did not realize how much I loved it until one day when I went in, they were serving a plain parsley butter. Â Ugh. Â I wanted my redÂ butter back!

I absolutely love when I can find a homemade replacement for my favorite restaurant foods. Â Although it can be a little dangerous, because then I make it allllllllll the time. Â Like this Copycat Olive Garden Steak Gorgonzola Alfredo. Â Dangerous.
So I went all in with this Sun-Dried Tomato Roasted Garlic Compound ButterÂ recipe and I think it turned out even better than the restaurant version as it is jam PACKED full of flavor. Â But now, I will likely be eating bread and butter more often. Whoops.
While this butter is amazing just with bread, it is also fantastic when spread on chicken before roasting. Â You can also toss some pasta in it with a little olive oil, cheese, and some veggies for a fast dinner.
A small food processor is PERFECT for a job like this! Â 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. Â This affiliate link will take you to said adorable mini food processor, which comes in multiple colors!
I hope you fall in love with this butter as much as I did. Â Get creative and use it in other ways like pasta, chicken, and more! Â If you can get it to last that long ð
- In a food processor, add the sun-dried tomatoes and roasted garlic. Pulse a few times until they start to break up and become more of a paste. If your food processor is large, it may not reach the ingredients very well. This is fine, they will continue to be processed later.
- To the tomatoes and roasted garlic, add the remaining ingredients. Make sure the butter has been softened to room temperature so that it blends well.
- Process until all ingredients are incorporated, approximately 30 seconds. Do not pulse too long or else the butter will start to solidify.
- The butter will be warm and soft at this point. You can serve it as is, or you can let it chill.
