How to make butter as delicious as it should be?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created May 31, 2012 at 6:55 AM

I don't like eating sticks of butter. I don't like melted butter diluted with water, and I'm too sensitive to caffeine to be a regular coffee drinker.

It seems like a shame to take such a delicious food ingredient as butter and have it be only marginally edible food.

Does anyone have any recipes for foods that are made of 80% or more butter?

On a slightly more serious note, I did just try a pancake made from chocolate flavored whey powder and Great Lakes collagen hydrolysate. Just add enough water to get pancake batter-like consistency and pour on the griddle. It came out pretty dense and a little dry but looked an awful lot like the real deal. Although I admit protein powder is not really paleo. I blame Mark Sisson, Primal Fuel is like a gateway drug.

Ah, I guess I didn't read thoroughly enough- this recipe is surely not 80% butter, but is buttery-delicious! Why forcefeed ourselves butter anyway?

Haven't watched the Simpsons in years. I just noticed that my comments are super snarky today. I'm traveling for work and therefore grumpy.

So consuming dairy means you should also consume neolethal foods. Your logic sucks.

Why eat so much butter? Doesn't sound normal or healthy (not talking from a conventional wisdom POV either).

I'm not sure I get it -- do you not like butter such that it's "marginally edible", or is it "delicious"? if you don't like it, don't eat it. if you do, just put it on top of everything -- veggies, meat, dark chocolate.

Okay this is not totally paleo but technically butter is dairy and that isn't exactly paleo sooo...

Homer's Patented Space-Age Out of This World Moon Waffles

Ingredients:

1 package caramels
waffle batter liquid smoke
1/2-1 cup butter

Directions:

Pour first 3 ingredients on waffle iron. Close iron. You may enjoy the"waffle runoff" that is squeezed out when you close the iron. When waffle is done, peel it off the waffle iron. Wrap waffle around full stick of butter. Insert toothpick to close waffle around butter and enjoy.

Here is a video if this helps!

Sliced potato and butter sliders.

Nuke or boil some nice red, yellow, or blue potatoes (waxy, not starchy is best).

Throw them in the fridge until chilled.

Slice into 1/4"-1/2" thick slices, and sandwich pats of butter between the potato slices.

Salt and pepper to taste. Also good with a little hot sauce.

first, use ghee (make it yourself to remove the dairy) instantly paleo

second, if I attempted to eat plain ghee or mixed in water, I'd have trouble eating it too!

mix your ghee in to the foods you are eating, melt it on top of chicken and veggies, use in eggs; its pretty easy to get a few tablespoons of ghee in per day.

how much butter are you thinking you need in your diet anyways? a whole stick? there are plenty of other ways to get good fats including EVOO, coconut oil, avocado, and the quantity is not necessarily a huge amount to satisfy 65% of your diet too.

Chicken liver pate!

Some recipes call for a good amount of butter.

dessert...these chocolates literally melt in your mouth because of the butter

One stick of butter.
one cup almond butter.
one cup coconut.
6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder.
1/3 cup (plus more to desired texture) of slivered almonds.
stevia or honey to taste.

melt the butter and mix all the ingredients together, plop them down on some waxed paper lined cookie sheets(or use candy molds if you are a miss fancy pants) and chill until set. If you want a chocolate-y fruit dip for apples or strawberries this will work for that also. I had to portion this out into individual servings and freeze some so I wouldnt eat it all in one sitting

Not really omelette/not really scrambled eggs Melt a tablespoon of butter in a microwave bowl. Add an egg or two, whisk and return to the microwave until the eggs are just cooked. Quick, easy and delicious!

If you drink tea, you could try butter tea (http://www.yowangdu.com/tibetan-food/butter-tea.html minus the sugar/milk), to be honest it sounds strange to me and I just drink white/green tea, so don't know if this will taste any good.

Other than that, I love to fry vegetables, like Onions, Mushrooms (especially Mushrooms), Broccoli, etc in tons of butter. Or eggs with butter is also amazing. I usually have soft/hardboiled eggs, eat some of the yolk and then just stick some butter in and let it melt a bit.
