Garlic Lemon Butter

Rated as 4.77 out of 5 Stars

"This tangy flavored butter offers a nice change from plain butter and gives a refreshing new taste to an ear of corn. When I serve this on the side during fresh corn season, the same question always gets asked--'What's is the butter that makes it so delicious?'"

This was good. I was worried about the amount of lemon rind, but it actually was what made the butter taste good. If I made it again I would cut back the garlic slightly to taste more of the but...

I used this with a roasted chicken I found on this website. Threw it on the roasted carrots and potatoes, as well as some corn on the cob. Was mouth watering and delicious.

Loved it; cut the recipe in half and used Light Land O Lakes butter; fantastic!
