This garlic butter spread recipe is sponsored by Mirum. Opinions are 100% my own. The fierce summer temperatures make me want to lighten up recipes whenever possible. If there’s a way to replace heavy ingredients with something lighter without sacrificing flavor, I am on a mission to do so.
Mike loves meat and cheese as an appetizer. He’s pulled to charcuterie boards like a magnet should one be served at a gathering. I decided to make one myself this time, including a garlic spread for the bread and crackers. I used a recipe given to me by my aunt but replaced the butter with Brummel & Brown Yogurt Spread. We had a small family gathering by the pool, and everyone gobbled up the garlic butter spread as they grazed the appetizers.
Brummel & Brown Yogurt Spread is extremely versatile. Use it on its own for a delicious and buttery flavor. Or, try it out as a butter replacement to cut out some fat and calories this summer. Brummel & Brown is made with plant-based oils, purified water, and yogurt giving it a sweet taste and creamy texture.
Instead of buying packaged dips and spreads, I’m making a habit to create homemade recipes. I like the fact that I can control the ingredients, and also that the food is a lot fresher. By no means are we on a health kick, but every little tweak in the right direction counts for something, right? 😉
