Butter Board Recipes - The New Charcuterie Board That is Taking Over Tiktok

What is a butter board?
A butter board is a small wooden board with a groove around the edge, used for holding a block of butter.
The bread is placed on the board, and the butter is spread over the top. The softened butter helps to flavor the bread and can also be used to make a savory or sweet combination with other toppings like jam, salt, honey, or lemon zest.
How do you make a Butter Board?
To make a butter board, you'll need softened butter, a board or platter, and a spreader. Spread the butter on the board or platter, using as much or as little as you like. You can make a savory butter by adding a combination of herbs, spices, and bread crumbs.
The presentation is best on a wooden cutting board - but marble also works here! An extra bonus is that wooden boards loves oil and butter!
What type of butter is best for a butter board?
Salted butter is highly recommended since you wouldn't be using unsalted butter on your toast, right? It brings out the flavor well. One exception would be if you're making a dessert butter board (think cinnamon, butter, honey, and bread). Unsalted butter, would be better for dessert boards.
You want the butter to be soft at room temperature - but not mushy. Spreadable butter is best.
For color, grass-fed butter such as Kerrygold will have a richer yellow color whereas less expensive options will be more of a lighter yellow.
Butter board is best done on a dark wood - it shows so much better! If you try a butter board on a blonde wood such as maple, it wouldn't show as well. We want a board that is as yummy as it is aesthetic!
