Prep time 15 mins
Bake time 1 hr
Yield Makes about 2/3 cup
Roasted Garlic-Red Pepper Butter is perfect for Italian food lovers to serve as an antipasto.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 garlic bulb
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped jarred roasted red bell peppers
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

How to Make It

  1. Let butter stand until room temperature. (Butter should be very soft.)

  2. Cut off pointed end of garlic; place garlic on a piece of aluminum foil, and drizzle with oil. Fold foil to seal.

  3. Bake at 400° for 1 hour; cool. Squeeze pulp from garlic cloves. Combine 1 1/2 tsp. pulp and butter in a medium bowl, reserving remaining garlic for another use. Stir in peppers and basil. Brush on hot grilled corn, and sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese.
