When I was offered a chance to try a couple of new products from Kerrygold I jumped at it! I would like to issue a warning here that one of the products is a reduced fat butter. This would be a first for me and no one will be more surprised than my Mom. Hi Mom! Last time my folks came to visit, my Mom brought her own butter-like spread. I told her it would still be here next time she comes to visit, because I won't eat that stuff!
Next time I will have something delicious to offer her in place of my normal fat laden butter. You see Kerrygold, has a new Reduced Fat Butter with less sodium and they are also bringing out a new Naturally Softer Butter. This stuff is good enough to just eat with a spoon. Not that I would really do that, well maybe just a little taste.
I got in the kitchen and got a little creative with the new Kerrygold butters. I really love compound butters but I rarely think to make them. I made two different compound butters and now I have to admit to eating it right off of the spoon. They will knock your socks off! I made these and realized I needed biscuits! I whipped up a batch of buttermilk biscuits and talk about butter love.
You cannot beat the quality of Kerrygold products. I have been a fan of their Dubliner cheese for a long time and just recently found their butter locally. The lady at the grocery store must have thought I was a little crazy to be so excited over butter!
First up is the Cinnamon-Honey Fig Butter. You must try this, I am so addicted that I didn't even save any for the kids. I did share with my husband; however, reluctantly! I promise you will never suspect that it's made with reduced fat butter!
Cinnamon-Honey Fig Butter
- ½ cup Kerrygold Reduced Fat Butter
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 2 tablespoons dried figs, chopped small
- ¼ teaspoon Saigon cinnamon
Place in a small bowl and stir until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap or in an airtight container and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
*fabulous served with biscuits, toast, waffles, bagels or English muffins or right off of the spoon!
Doesn't that look scrumptious?
Next up we have Lemon Poppy Seed Butter. Sweet and lemony with a great little crunch from the poppy seeds. I just love lemon poppy seed muffins but I don't always have time to make them. Spread this on a biscuit or a piece of whole wheat toast and it's like a little piece of breakfast heaven.
Lemon Poppy Seed Butter
- ½ cup Kerrygold Naturally Soft Butter
- 1 teaspoon poppy seeds
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
In a small bowl stir together all ingredients until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap or in an airtight container and refrigerate until ready to serve.
I know you will enjoy these compound butters and believe me when I tell you the new Kerrygold butters are every bit as delicious as I claim.
*Disclaimer: Kerrygold provided me with samples of the butter to try. Kerrygold is hosting a contest between a few bloggers to see who has the best use of the butter. All opinions are my own. I was not compensated for this post.
