Cinnamon Honey Butter

Wow your family and guests, and leave them craving more. . .

. . . cinnamon honey butter is a quick and simple way to spice up the ordinary and make your next meal unforgettable.

Our Discovery

On a road trip following the Snake River Idaho USA, we splurged on a special dinner at Texas Roadhouse Steakhouse in the city of Meridian where we spent the night.  The lively atmosphere and rousing camaraderie combined to make some wild western fun.

To our surprise, the staff went above and beyond helping me make some marvelous gluten-free menu choices.

Our meals were exceptionally delicious.

What stood out more than anything else was their delicious butter . . .

. . . like a taste of heaven, it left us craving more!


Is it addictive?

You bet it is!

When I returned home my mission to reproduce that remarkable culinary encounter became an unexpected quest.

What I discovered was that while Roadhouse’s special recipe paired well their strong flavored menu items, it did not compliment my homemade meals; it was too strong and cloyingly sweet.

After spending many hours researching recipes, I threw up my hands in frustration and ventured out on my own to recreate that memorable experience.

The result was a humble version of Roadhouse’s bold southern style recipe. . . 

. . . more subtle, almost delicate, with the blended flavors complimenting the meal instead of shouting loudest above it.

For a brighter, almost floral flavor more consistent with Pacific Northwest cuisine, I used organic ingredients and raw wildflower honey.

Doing so, I achieved that same “melt-in-your-mouth”, “to-die-for” feeling I was looking for.

Can eating Texas Roadhouse’s special butter cause an obsession?

Absolutely!

While their recipe is easily copied online, and is great for desserts or for southern inspired menus, with my recipe you’ll enjoy a lighter, more sophisticated rendition of the same idea.


Vary Flavor Nuances

Use raw honey from different nectar sources, such as blackberry honey, clover honey, orange blossom honey, thyme honey and mesquite honey.

Consider changing up your cinnamon, use Chinese or Saigon cinnamon instead of the more common Cassia cinnamon found in neighborhood grocery stores.
