One of my favorite parts about living a ketogenic lifestyle is the incorporation of delicious fats. While I do appreciate the use of butter, I do believe it’s best when used in moderation. A compound butter, infused with fresh herbs is always great for adding flavor to your favorite dishes. I’ll share some of my favorite combinations for compound butter as time goes on, but for now here's an incredibly simple lemon-rosemary butter. It will pair well with any lamb dish! Try it!
