Learning how to make butter spreadable makes my morning much easier.  I only eat butter on my toast and bread. I do not eat margarine for health reasons.  I really do not like the fact that butter is hard and unspreadable out of the refrigerator.  Thankfully, there is a trick!  When I received a sample of Pompeian Extra Olive Oil as part of the program, I knew that I was going to show you how to make butter spreadable. There is a referral link to join Smiley360 at the bottom of my post.

There is just about nothing that tastes better than butter spread on fresh homemade bread.   I love spreading it on corn bread and on quick breads as well.  Since butter is generally rock solid when you remove it from the refrigerator, I have to leave it on the counter to get it to soften.  Since I prefer not to do that, I needed to learn how to make butter spreadable even if I stored it in the refrigerator. I know that I can buy spreadable butter in the grocery store but honestly it costs so much money that I knew there had to be a better way.

  • 1 cup of softened butter, salted
  • 2/3 cup of Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil


  1. Whip the butter until it is soft and fluffy.
  2. Very slowly add the Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil, scraping down the sides occasionally.
  3. Put it into a container with a lid & store in the refrigerator. The mixture will be very soft until you refrigerate it. That is fine.

  1. What a great tip! I hate when the butter is too hard to spread!
  2. OurFamilyWorld says
    This is such an awesome tip! I never would have thought to use olive oil that way. I don't like when butter comes out of the fridge all hard. It tears my bread apart. I'll remember to try this next time.
  3. Melissa @ says
    What a fun easy tip - thank you!
  4. What a great idea Ellen. I never would have guessed and always buy the spreadable butter because I can't stand rock hard butter. Lack of planning on my part usually means we don't get soft butter in our house. Thanks!
  5. My mom always used to do this when we were kids! It does make it much easier to spread.
  6. This is such a great tip! I imagine this tastes much better than the spreadable butter that comes in a tub.
  7. I absolutely love this tip!  I like my butter spreadable but  I don't like to buy butters that are spreadable because weird chemicals were added to it.  I will definitely be doing this!
  8. Such a helpful tip! I will keep this in mind :)

    that butter looks great!
  10. Oh that is super cool!! now I know!!
  11. This is a very helpful thing to know! I hate torn bread!
  12. Thanks for the tip! I am going to try this. Spreadable butter is expensive to buy in addition to the sticks of butter I need to cook! Does it last a while in a container though or do you have to use it up quick?

      It lasts just as long as regular butter would as long as you store it in the refrigerator or a cool spot.
