Compound butter is simply butter with an added flavor or two mixed in. It's not just like buttering an item and then adding a sprinkle of the flavor - compound butter becomes a unique flavor unto itself. You can put these on pastries, meat, pasta - anything you like.
The Best Hamburger Seasoning: 1 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon ground black pepper 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon dark brown sugar 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder 1/8 teaspoon onion powder 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper. This is really the best I have tasted. Not too spicy and it didn't over power the burger. Made 5-1-13
