  • 1/2 cup butter (1 stick) softened
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper or more to taste


  • Take the butter out of the fridge 30+ minutes prior to starting the recipe. It needs to be really soft.
  • Add the butter to a medium bowl along with the rest of the ingredients. Using an electric hand mixer, mix until everything is combined and you've got a smooth, fluffy whipped butter texture (may take a few minutes especially if butter hasn't fully softened/warmed up).
  • Transfer the spreadable butter to another bowl or jar/container for storage. I recommend keeping it in the fridge for optimal shelf life (it'll easily last at least 2-3 weeks in the fridge). Texture: It will spread easier than normal butter when it's straight out of the fridge, and you can also let it soften up for a few minutes prior to using if you wish. Or, go up to 1/2 cup of olive oil if you want it very soft straight out of the fridge.


  • Recipe is easily doubled by doubling all ingredients.
