Lemon Pepper Compound Butter

Like my Citrus Herb Compound Butter, this compound Lemon Pepper Compound Butter is good on so many things.

It’s good on chicken, pork, turkey, potatoes, broccoli, green beans, carrots… you could use it to cook eggs, toss with pasta or rice, spread on toast (add extra garlic to make kicked up lemon pepper garlic bread!). 

This Lemon Pepper Compound Butter could be good on anything really.

It’s easy to put together, and it stores in the fridge for a couple weeks. 

Lemon Pepper Compound Butter is the STAR ingredient in my Lemon Pepper Whole Pressure Cooker Chicken & Potatoes made in my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker.
