Have you heard about the new movie called Butter? It’s about butter carving, which is like ice sculpting, but with butter. The premise is that an adopted girl enters a butter carving competition in Iowa and has to face the (competitive) reigning champion’s wife. Jennifer Garner, Ty Burrell (he plays Phil Dunphy on Modern Family!), Olivia Wilde, Hugh Jackman, and Alicia Silverstone star in this comedy, which came out on October 5, 2012 in parts of the country.
Being the food lover that I am, I totally want to see this. It looks hilarious. I mean, it’s a movie about butter sculpting. Who would have ever thought that was a…thing? However, this competition got me thinking. Isn’t that a waste of butter? AllFreeCasseroleRecipes.com has a ton of recipes that would put that butter to better use. I picked three recipes that I think you’ll enjoy.
This biscuit recipe is made in mason jars, so they’re super cute. They’re super delicious, too. Butter is put into mason jars, which are put in the oven until the butter melts. Then, the biscuit ingredients are mixed together and placed in the buttery jars. When they bake, the butter will soak into every crevice of the biscuits. Yum!
This bread pudding recipe is a tasty dessert. Butter is spread onto bread slices, which are then soaked in a sugar and milk mixture. After the bread pudding is done baking, drizzle the two-ingredient, homemade rum sauce all over it. Delicious!
This broccoli cheese chicken casserole is a terrific dinner meal. It uses butter in two important ways. First, it’s used in the sauce. Second, it’s mixed with poppy seeds and crushed Ritz Crackers to make a buttery, crumb topping. The butter holds this dish together. Awesome!
Without butter, all of these recipes would fall flat. So, instead of playing with (or carving) your butter, eat it and enjoy it!
