Garlic butter, also known as beurre à la bourguignonne, is a compound butter used as a flavouring for Escargots à la bourguignonne. It is also spread on bread or used in shrimp scampi. It is composed of butter and garlic pounded into a paste. These ingredients are well blended and chilled before use.
In the United States, garlic butter in small cups are sometimes served with seafood (such as lobster), pizza, or breadsticks as a dip. To prolong shelf life, the dip may use clarified butter or flavored oils rather than real butter.
