Asparagus with Dill Butter and Dill Biscuits

Recently I was contacted by Challenge Butter and asked to whip up a new Side Dish recipe with some of the ingredients that they sent me. Among the ingredients, were butter, of course and dill.

After some looking around and talking to several friends and fellow bloggers, I decided to make Asparagus with Dill Butter, and Dill Biscuits. I didn’t want the butter to be plain though, so I whipped 1/2 cup of the butter and added 1 teaspoon dill weed.

Then I put the Dill Butter in my decorator bag and piped rosettes onto wax paper and chilled it for about 2 hours.

I steamed the asparagus and served the butter on the side.

Thanks to Challenge Butter for the other goodies they sent me. Be sure to head on over to their website and enter for a chance to win a 7-day/6-night trip for 4 people to the Mountain Sky Guest Ranch in Montana’s Paradise Valley, just North of Yellowstone National Park.

    How fun! I checked out Challenge Butter’s site and they don’t use milk with rbST, which is a growth hormone. That’s a good thing. Your asparagus looks delish! Thanks for linking to Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays!

  3. Hard to beat asparagus with butter! That butter looks and sounds great, too. I’m not a dill fan, but for those who are, I know it’s all dillicious … sorry, couldn’t help myself. ;-)

    I couldn’t find the trip info on their site, but will keep looking. We love Montana and haven’t been to Yellowstone yet.
