I’m so excited to tell you about a new product we’ve developed for you – Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt. It’s wonderful to use in your cooking and baking recipes and for spreading on your favorite bread or topping warm vegetables. We’ve combined our tasty butter with the goodness of olive oil and sea salt to naturally enhance the flavor of your favorite foods. Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt will give your recipes a depth and richness you’ll love, and it complements any dish in a way that oil alone just can’t.
The cooking methods used by chefs were our inspiration for this product. Have you ever watched a cooking show where the chef uses both butter and olive oil in cooking, or wondered why a recipe sometimes calls for one or the other — or even both together? Olive oil and butter each contribute something different in cooking, and a lot of it has to do with flavor.
When used in cooking, both butter and olive oil help carry the flavors of the food, and warming them accentuates this property. Butter is smooth and creamy, adding a dairy richness that no oil can match. Olive oil provides a unique flavor and aroma. Together, they enhance the flavor of your foods.
I’ve got to tell you, since I’ve been working as the manager for butters and spreads here at Land O'Lakes, I’ve learned a thing or two about when to add butter in a recipe where I may have only used an oil in the past. For instance, when I used to make quesadillas, I always used a nonstick cooking spray or light olive oil; but have you ever tried buttering your tortillas when making quesadillas instead of using just oil? Oh my! Try it with our Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt. You won’t believe how brown and crisp your quesadillas get, and the taste is amazing.
I love the collection of recipes we developed for Butter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt.
