Whipped Herb Butter

If you want to add a fun twist to this whipped butter recipe, here is a tasty herb rendition.   This is always a hit!  And goes deliciously well with some homemade artisan bread.

1 pound butter (4 sticks), room temperature
1 c. olive oil
1/4 c. chopped fresh chives
1/2 tsp dried oregano
2-3 medium garlic cloves, minced
-Combine all ingredients in mixer (kitchenmaid, boschmixer, or you can also use a hand-held mixer). Whip for THREE Minutes until butter is white and fluffy.  Spoon into serving dishes.  Put in fridge and store in fridge.  Butter is spreadable out of fridge.  You can also freeze extra butter and pull out at your convenience!

This is a version from Ina Garten which is also very good!
