How do you Brown Butter?

It is super easy to brown butter. Simply put your butter in a thick-bottomed saucepan and heat it on medium on the stove.

Once the butter melts, it will start to carmelize the milk solids in the butter. This is when it becomes brown. Once it all looks light brown, remove it from the heat and you’ll have brown butter ready to use.

If you’re mixing the brown butter into a recipe with eggs, let the butter cool for a bit before mixing it. You don’t want the eggs to cook when the hot butter touches it.
