11 Best Butter Board Recipes Everyone Is Crazy For

11 Butter Board Ideas

What is Butter Board?

Yes, I did pose the same question. As with most phenomena these days, TikTok is where it all began. Even if I'm not a huge admirer of the social media sensation, I have to confess that TikTok is the best source for cooking advice, recipes, and tricks.

The most current trend appears to have been started by Justine Doiron of TikTok, who attributes the butter board to Joshua McFadden's book, "Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables."

Simple is the idea. You artistically spread room-temperature butter onto a board, dish, or platter and then garnish it with herbs, salt, almonds, dried fruit, and other delectable ingredients. Serve it with the bread of your choice. Similar to the charcuterie board, it makes for a quick but aesthetically pleasing appetizer that doesn't involve a lot of cooking or preparation.

There were many visually stunning butter boards out there, and I remember thinking, "Wow! That is lovely. yet I'm not interested in eating it.

So I carried out my normal actions. I put together 10 butter board ideas that are damn yummy and easy to prepare.


Who started the butter board craze?

Since at least 2017, when Chef Josh McFadden included the idea in his James Beard Award-winning cookbook Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables, butter boards have been around. In the book, McFadden adorned the board with edible flowers and herbs.


Let's see the tastiest Butter Board Recipes that you can prepare easily at home!


1. Honey Garlic Butter Board

Although butter board can be either sweet or salty, this recipe naturally combines the two. The perfect snack is made with this recipe's sweet and sour honey garlic sauce, which is topped with plenty of parmesan and salted butter.


2. Italian herb and garlic butter board

The butter board in Off the Line Cooking is done in an Italian style with loads of herbs and handmade garlic confit. You should serve this as an appetizer at your subsequent spaghetti dinner.


3. Desi Butter Board

This Indian-inspired Butter Board recipe is definitely worth trying. I was tempted to follow the trend because I had seen so many variations of this board. Adding paneer, bell pepper, onions, chaat masala, and garlic to Naan is what makes up this popular TikTok dish.

Serving this with a quick bread like zucchini bread or even pumpkin bread, in my opinion, would be incredible.



Are butter boards healthy?

What is the issue with butter boards? To begin with, the butter base isn't particularly healthy. Nothing beats a little butter as a garnish or as a spread on warm toast. But butter doesn't make the ideal option as the foundation of a board that is being scooped up with each bite, according to Bonnie Taub-Dix, RDN, founder of and author of Read It Before You Eat It: Taking You from Label to Table. Butter is not the type of fat that is greatest for your heart because it is high in calories and saturated fat. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, 1 tablespoon of butter has 7 grams (g) of saturated fat on its own (USDA).

Furthermore, using butter boards makes it difficult to avoid soiled double dipping. According to Taub-Dix, "double-dipping could leave you with a side of germs that you didn't figure on, as with anything that you're scooping up off a board or a bowl." This was supported by a short study that showed double-dipping markedly enhanced the number of bacteria in dips. Additionally, she adds, "if the board is not thoroughly cleansed before the butter is spread on it, you could also be ingesting some old bacteria from the board itself."


What to eat with butter boards?

Simple is the idea. You beautifully spread room-temperature butter onto a board, dish, or platter and then garnish it with herbs, salt, almonds, dried fruit, and other delectable ingredients. Serve it with the bread of your choice.
