If you want to make something absolutely show-stopping for your next dinner party, this upgraded bread and butter recipe is just what you need. Here’s how to make this viral Instagram recipe at home. 

Start by melting a stick or two of butter. If you’d like, mix in your favorite herbs for a delicious infused taste. Rosemary or thyme are great options.

Pour the melted butter into a paper cup and place a wick in the middle. To make sure the wick stays in place, freeze the butter for a few hours or until firm. In the meantime, you can get your bread ready. 

This recipe will work with any bread but sourdough is always a great option. Start by cutting a hole in the middle of the loaf. Use the same paper cup as a size guide. Slice the sides of the loaf to create easy-to-tear pieces. 

Once the butter is frozen, remove it from the plastic cup. Tearing it off is probably the easiest. 

Place the butter in the bread and when the guests arrive, light the candle. As the butter melts, enjoy tearing off pieces and dipping them into the flavored goodness.
