Budget Herb Butter

There are some luxuries that don't fit into the grocery budget of a frugal shopper. Herb butter is one of those luxuries. However, since a frugal lifestyle is a creative lifestyle, making herb butter at home is an affordable way to add a little gourmet touch to your frugal meals. There's an abundance of herb butter recipes available online.

When I want a small amount of herb butter to go with a meal, I simply use one of the following recipes. Of course, if you grow your own herbs, dry them, and create your own herb mixtures, you can make herb butter in an even more budget friendly manner than when you use herbs and seasonings purchased at the store.


  • 1/4 cup margarine or butter
  • 1/4 tsp. basil
  • 1/4 tsp. thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder


Mix well and refrigerate until you're ready to use.

Quick and Easy Herb Butter:

Mixing 1/4 cup margarine or butter and 1/2 teaspoon of a seasoning blend such as Mrs. Dash is as quick and easy as it gets when making herb butter. There are many flavorful blends of Mrs. Dash available so that you can prepare specific flavors that will complement the meal you are having.
