I think it’s safe to say that butter and toast is underrated. At a breakfast buffet, are you reaching for the bread and butter? At brunch, are you ordering the toast? Maybe you’re a total toast fanatic and I’m just the weirdo who gravitates towards waffles and pancakes.
My point is that at the end of the day, butter and toast is a solid breakfast option, even though it’s nothing fancy.
We need to give butter and toast a chance. I mean, there isn’t much out there that’s better than butter.
Except, of course, for this compound butter that has honey and walnuts mixed in. It take no more than 20 minutes to make, including the “solidifying” time.
You’ll want to whip this butter up ASAP. And as soon as you have a taste, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t make it sooner.
- 2 sticks salted butter (1 cup)
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1/2 cup crushed walnuts
Let the butter sit out and soften. While it’s softening, crush the walnuts using a knife.
In a mixing bowl, mix together the softened butter with the walnuts. Then drizzle the honey and continue to mix.
When you’re happy with how well the walnuts and honey have blended with the butter, put the butter in the fridge for a few minutes. This will make it easier to work with.
Take it out of the fridge and store in wax paper. You may want to roll it up or store it in a block shape like I did.
Serve on your choice of bread. I spread the butter on brioche bread and it was excellent.Yum
