Homemade Bacon Chive Butter

Vacation is lovely, oh so lovely, but the recovery and hustling required upon one's return home can be classified as total insanity. Today has been a blur of swim lessons, doctor's appointments, dirty laundry, gloomy weather, grocery shopping and dishes. I'm praying for a less blurry tomorrow that may include Perfect Baked Potatoes with this delicious Bacon Chive Butter (or as I call it, Loaded Baked Potato Butter) slathered all over it.

Homemade Bacon Chive Butter

I can think of about ninety-seven different types of food that this Bacon Chive Butter would taste amazing with. To name a few: potatoes of any variety (like these Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes) and cooked any way, steak or steak bites, dinner rolls, corn on the cob or rice.

I'm always looking for different butter flavors because putting a little twist on butter makes food so much tastier. And who doesn't love a loaded baked potato? By the way, if you, too, love loaded baked potatoes, check out my Twice-Baked Potatoes and Loaded Potato Soup!

I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far! Thanks for peeking in and enjoy the yummy butter!
