Buttery Olive Oil Spread
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup pure olive oil
Beat butter in a food processor until softened, then gradually add the olive oil. When it is all completely blended, it will be quite pourable. Pour into a container with a lid, then store in the fridge. Use as a low saturated fat butter spread in place of margarine.
Margarine is typically filled with flavor enhancers and coloring so we always cook with 100% butter or olive oil. I have always wanted a low saturated fat option for spreading on toast or waffles and thanks to the Australian Olive Association I finally found a great solution. This is easy to make, stores great in the fridge, spreads easily and still has the taste of butter. I love it.
I use pure olive oil for this recipe as extra virgin olive oil may overpower the buttery taste.
