  • 1/2 cup Butter Unsalted. Kerry preferred.
  • 1 bulb Garlic Use less if you don't like a strong garlic taste
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/3 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp White Pepper
  • 1 ea Parmesan To taste


  • Gather your ingredients and set your oven for 350 degrees.
  • Begin melting the butter in a pot over low heat. We have quite a bit of time, so no need to rush the melting process or risk over heating the butter.
  • Grate, Mince, or Crush the garlic. The finer the texture, the more flavor that will be infused into the butter. Place the garlic in the over to roast for 15-20 minutes or so. Be sure to occasionally stir it around.
  • Add the garlic to the melted butter. Stir.
  • Add the remaining ingredients. Stir well. This is the time to add any Parmesan you'd like as well if you want to put a bit of a cheese flavor into the dip.
  • Strain the butter to remove all of the solids.
  • This is the end result after I strained the butter twice. Depending on your strainer, you may need to do it more than once. Enjoy!


  • This is not something you should be eating within 24 hours of going on a date.  😉
  • You can skip the clarifying steps and use this as a garlic “paste” on a pizza dough rather than a tomato based sauce.
  • I left the stove on low heat for the entire process right until clarifying the butter.
