I was pleasantly surprised to find the previous owner of our house had planted chives and I've managed to keep them alive. My newest way to use them is this Garlic Chive Whipped Butter from Taste of Home.
Nothing makes me happier than a recipe that's simple to put together but can be used in a lot of different ways, and this is one of those! I've used it to make grilled cheese, you can top baked potatoes, add to fresh veggies like corn or green beans. It was also amazing to finish a steak.
Don't have chives? Basil would be excellent as well. Thank you to Sue S. for sharing her recipe! Do you have an amazing recipe you'd like to submit to Taste of Home? Follow this link and learn how! Want to apply to be a Taste of Home Community Cook? Check out the requirements and apply here.
