About Medlee

What does the name mean?

The name is a play on the word “Medley” which means mixture. Can you think of a better mixture than butter and herbs and cheese and all the other great ingredients in Medlee Seasoned Butters?

What is “compound butter”?

“Compound butter” is why you’re here! We, at Medlee, make a line of compound butters also known as flavored butter, finishing butter or beurre composè used for sautéing or as a finishing flavor in cooking. We describe it as “seasoned butter”. Chefs everywhere know the power of compound butter to razzle dazzle people, but it’s less common at home. Lucky for you, Medlee is changing the game with home-sized offerings. Currently, we offer four flavors, Basil Pesto, Red Chile, Lemon Herb and Garlic Parm. Each butter has a recipe suggestion on the back but don’t let us hold you back. See below for some more great ideas.

These Medlee Seasoned Butters made my dinner taste great! What else can I do with them?

Our motto is “Everything’s better with butter”, so take it away! Any cooked, hot pasta or grain tossed in Medlee Butter gets better, but so do cooked, hot veggies – potatoes, green beans, cauliflower, bell peppers, corn on the cob, we could keep going, but you get the idea. We’re not above spreading these butters on boring bread too, or making a grilled cheese. And don’t forget the popcorn! Looking to jazz up some meat? We suggest the Red Chile butter for chicken, but it would also be great on a pork chop or steak. Just add a disc or two after they’ve finished cooking. Check back soon for more recipes beyond the package and also, let us know how you use Medlee Butters! Gram it, tweet it, post it.

Can I make my own compound butter?

There are lots of recipes to make your own compound butter, but we’ve already brought all the ingredients together for you and created perfectly portioned medallions to craft the right flavors. There’s still some cooking involved, but you’re one step closer to perfection.

What are the ingredient standards?

The butter we use is Grade AA and free of rBST. We think carefully in selecting high quality ingredients for our products. There is no artificial flavors or preservatives ever used.

I ate all the butter. Where can I get more?

About the Butters

OMG. These butters are so good. Will there be more flavors?

Aw, shucks. You’re making us blush. Yes! We are working on new flavors and new recipes all the time.

Uh oh. My butter is stuck. How do I get it out of the packaging?

First of all, don’t panic. You will get to that delicious butter. Pop it in the freezer for 10 minutes and then use it straight out of the freezer. We’ve found that teeny tiny baby food or adult-sized espresso spoons are the perfect utensil to scoop it out. One of us (he’ll remain unnamed) isn’t above using a chopstick to get in that pocket of deliciousness. We don’t recommend licking the pack, but what you do at home is your thing. We won’t judge, but maybe no more sharing the butter?

Could I keep the unused butter in the refrigerator?

Only if you don’t want a melty mess on your counter! We tease, but yes, please keep the Medlee tray in the fridge. Each package has a USE BY date printed on the side of the clear tray. Once you peel back that sticker on top, try to use the whole tray up in 10 days. If that’s not enough time, pop it in the freezer and it will last longer. You can always use it directly out of the freezer but it might take a little longer to melt – adjust your cooking times or temps as needed. Be careful that it doesn’t end up in the very back, no mans land part of the freezer – you’re gonna need it sooner than you think!

Whoops! I threw out the sleeve. What do I do?

Ok. You’re really freaking out. Deep breath. Congrats on making it to our website. Thanks, Google! Now, check out this page for all the packaging instructions. Maybe one more deep breath?

Are the Medlee Butters gluten and allergen free?

Yes and no. All of our butters CONTAIN MILK. We don’t have any of the other FDA’s major allergens (wheat, egg, tree nuts, peanuts, soy) in our kitchens and manufacturing plant. But we also don’t test for the presence of allergens in our products. So if you are concerned about allergens, please check with your doctor.
