    Another amazing recipe from Fine Cooking

    Easy and Tasty! I've made this many times, and it's always a hit. I, too, add a little more shallot, and I saute the shallot first. Also, I make the herb butter mixture and add it to my bread machine baked bread recipe - 1 to 2 tablespoons per loaf. Such a simple way to jazz up a basic recipe.
