Thank you to Thomas’ English Muffins for sharing these recipes, providing the ingredients and several packs of delicious English Muffins!

In honor of Monday April 23 being National English Muffin Day, I’m celebrating by going on Good Day Columbus to share some gourmet butter recipes.  I will share the following gourmet butter recipes on air, and with you:  Blue Cheese, Sage and Bacon Butter Recipe, Blackberry and Thyme Butter Recipe and Everything Bagel Butter Recipe.

Gourmet butters have continued to reign supreme as one of the year’s tastiest and most popular culinary trends, thanks to their ability to transform so many dishes from good to great!  These special butter recipes will dial up the flavor on a delicious steak, your favorite breakfast sandwich or even a burger.

We like that the butters can be mixed up, stored in the refrigerator and used throughout the week.  While these gourmet butters are great with a meal, we love to spread them on a Thomas’ English Muffin for a snack.

We found that each butter has a unique flavor.  We like the Blackberry and Thyme Butter paired with cinnamon raisin English muffins for breakfast.  The Everything Bagel Butter Recipe makes a great snack or accompanies many meals well.  I can’t wait to try the Blue Cheese, Sage and Bacon Butter on top of grilled meat or on burgers.

Gourmet Butter Tips:

-Use unsalted butter so you can season to your own tastes

-Ensure that butter is at room temperature before mixing

-Use plastic wrap to roll or shape the butter however you please

-Twist the plastic wrap at the ends to seal

-Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to meld

-The best way to split a Thomas’ English Muffin is by gently separating the two halves with a fork (or your fingers) to preserve the perfect Nooks and Crannies texture, so the butter can really soak in
