  • 8 tbs Butter I used unsalted
  • 2.5 tbs Pesto Use more or less to your liking – See notes


  • Gather all of your ingredients. 😉
  • Add your pesto with the butter. I used a wooden spatula to smash and mix the butter. You can use your hands as well.
  • Parchment paper is great for making these enhanced butters. You can roll it up, shape it, etc. Put the butter into the fridge or freezer for a bit to let it harden back up before you use it.
  • Enjoy!


  • For the Pesto, try my simple Pesto Recipe!
  • While it makes a decent steak topper as you can see in the photo above, this butter really shines on bread.  Give it a try as “garlic toast”!
