When my family eats out, do you know what part of the meal is my children’s favorite? It’s the bread! I admit I am also a bread-a-holic, and especially when the bread is freshly baked and warm I just can’t resist eating more. I definitely get a bit embarrassed sometimes when my family goes through our third basket of bread, and my children are still raising their hands asking for more. This past trip in Japan, even though we tried many different cuisine and restaurants, one of my children’s favorite restaurants was actually a chain called Steak House Volks (フォルクス) that serves Yoshoku (western style Japanese food). The reason they love Volks? Volks freshly bakes their bread right there in the store and it’s all you can eat. As far as the topping goes, our preference is butter. I love it when restaurants serve room temperature butter in a ramekin topped with just a bit of salt. It frustrates me a bit when I see them serve butter which is still wrapped up in foil and hard from the fridge. Since the butter stays hard, when my children try to spread it themselves they always ends up eating lumps of butter. Recently I discovered a great product that my family’s been addicted to and that’s LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil. It is amazing, made of just 3 simple ingredients:
- sweet cream
- canola oil
It stays soft and spreadable right from the fridge. It melts very quickly with the slightest warmth and I can control the exact amount I want on my pastries or meal. Instead of worrying about the exact setting on the microwave to melt butter or possibly burn it on the stove, it’s easy to enjoy this product. You can use it to top a dinner dish like fish or steak to make them more flavorful, or put a little on grilled vegetables to soften the texture. We love it on our favorite seeded baguette and enjoy it with salami and some wine as appetizer. I’ve looked at other similar products and they contain many ingredients which I don’t recognize and not sure if I want my family to consume. If you enjoy a bit of butter on your breakfast pastries, or just a dab on your dinner dishes, try LAND O LAKES® Butter with Canola Oil. You’ll be as surprised as I was about how easy and delicious this product is.
