  • 250 g/ 8.8 oz/ 1 cup butter soft (Note 1)
  • small bunch chives Note 2
  • small bunch parsley
  • small bunch oregano
  • 10 garlic cloves
  • 3 fresh baguettes à 250 g/ 4.4 oz, about 25 cm/ 10 inches long
  • fine sea salt and pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius/ 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Take the butter out of the refrigerator and let it get soft. Chop the herbs very finely. Peel and grate the garlic. Mix everything together and add some salt and pepper to taste. You can chop and mix in the food processor as well.
  • Slice the baguettes at regular intervals but don't cut all the way through, the bottom should remain whole as it will hold the baguette together. Cut only about 2/3 through.
  • Smear the herb butter in between the slices. At this point, you could wrap the baguettes and refrigerate or freeze them for future use. Wrap each baguette in aluminum foil and bake in the preheated oven for about 10-15 minutes. Serve hot.



  1. Salted or unsalted butter, adjust the salt amount you use accordingly.
  2. You can replace the chives with basil for a different flavor.
