Here's some of my compilation for compound butter. Have fun. Parsley and garlic with butter would be delicious on grilled steak - or Roquefort and butter placed on a hot steak.
----------
Roasted Red Pepper and Garlic Butter
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
1-3 cloves minced garlic or 1 teaspoon garlic powder, adjust to taste
Fresh parsley, adjust to taste
Dried roasted red pepper, to taste (remove red pepper seeds)
----------
Garlic Butter
4 cloves of garlic
1 stick (1/4-pound) unsalted butter, softened

Mash to 4 cloves of garlic to a pulp, using a mortar and pestle, or put them through a garlic press. Blend the garlic into the butter. Use immediately or roll into a log using waxed paper. Place in a freezer bag and freeze for up to 2 months.
---------
Lemon Butter
1 stick (1/4-pound) unsalted butter, softened
1 Tablespoon freshly grated lemon peel
---------
Lemon Parsley Butter
1 stick (1/4-pound) unsalted butter, softened
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
3 Tablespoons chopped parsley
salt and white pepper

Cream the butter, then add the salt, pepper and lemon juice. Wrap the parsley into a corner of a kitchen towel, twist and squeeze to thoroughly dry the parsley. Add the parsley to the butter mixture. Use immediately, refrigerate for use in 1-2 days.
---------
Tarragon Butter
1 stick (1/4-pound) unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup fresh tarragon leaves (blanch the leaves for 2 minutes in boiling water. Dry thoroughly)
Mix the whole tarragon leaveas with the butter. Chop the mixed butter and tarragon leaves and remix. This prevents the tarragon from turning dark. Roll into a log using plastic wrap. Use immediately or refrigerate for use in 1-2 days.
----------
1 cup red wine
1 shallot, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons concentrated beef or chicken stock
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 stick (1/4-pound) unsalted butter, softened

Put the wine, chopped shallot and stock into a saucepan and boil down to 1/4 cup. Stir in the parsley and lemon juice. Cool the mixture. Work the cooled wine reduction into the butter. Season with salt and pepper. Roll into a log using plastic wrap. Use immediately or refrigerate for use in 1-2 days.
-------
Pistachio Herb Butter
Serve with grilled meat.
1 cup fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup chopped pistachios
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 Tbsp. butter, softened
Salt and pepper to taste
----------
GARLIC BUTTER
Thoroughly combine 1 stick or 1/2 cup butter, softened, 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley, 1 garlic clove, mashed and salt to taste. Let stand for 30 minutes. Use for garlic bread.
--------
Chili Butter
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
4-5 tsp. chili powder
1½ tsp. lime juice
1 tsp. pepper sauce
--------------
Strawberry Butter

1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. sugar
Fresh, strawberries, to taste
(hulled and halved)
---------
Herb Butter
1 stick butter, softened
Black pepper, to taste
Fresh parsley
Fresh tarragon
Fresh thyme
-----------
Lemon and Dill Butter
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1½ tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons grated lemon zest
Dill weed, to taste
--------------

1/2 cup softened butter
1 tbsp orange juice
1 tsp grated orange peel

You can also make sweet compound butters for muffins, pancakes etc. You can make lemon/honey ,raspberry and so on. All compound butters can be rolled on parchment paper on a long roll and frozen. The just take out of freezer and cut a few slices and go from there. The savory compounds are great on chicken and fish as well.

At work, we make "steak" butter, which is a jazzed-up version of maitre d'hotel butter. Our version uses 1 lb of unsalted butter, thinly sliced fresh chives (NOT green onions, real chives!), minced shallots, minced garlic, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Mix it up, and roll into parchment.
