Saw this interesting recipe http://tastykitchen.com/recipes/condiments/sea-salt-and-honey-almond-butter/ and wondered what other special spreads you might make for your table.

We have a Pennsylvania Dutch market that sells cheddar cheese powder.  I mix it with butter and serve with southern buttermilk biscuits.

Fresh finely grated cheese with butter is better but this will do in a pinch and great with a little garlic on broiled french bread.

For the peanut butter lovers (great for kids), best peanut butter you have, a drizzle of honey, 1 part softened butter to 2-3 parts peanut butter, a pinch of cinnamon to taste.  Mix well.   Kids that love peanut butter will slather this on anything from apples to pancakes.

THAT is the one I have been trying to remember - when  I did dinners, I would mix garlic powder into the softened butter and put it into the domed individual butter dishes. That went over VERY nicely.

I have added honey to softened butter and also have done a tad of cinnamon in the butter. A sprinkle of dill would give an interesting butter.

Our organic farmer gave us violas one year, we mixed them with butter, orange zest and a bit of honey to make a nice spread. But I can't get organic violas for eating all of the time Smiling

I do just the butter, orange zest, honey and a tad of orange juice (without the violas) as a butter for French toast.  For a savory butter, tarragon and a tad of white wine works well and is great on toast.
