This is how we do butter in Texas! You just can’t have too much onion, and the cinnamon works with that sweet onion flavor so well. If you’ve never tried it, then you just won’t know for sure until you do.

It’s so quick and easy to make. And of course, you can store it in the fridge just like you store any other butter. Always on hand to spread on a nice slab of fresh cornbread, or maybe a big thick piece of Texas toast!

So give it a try. You can make 1/4 the recipe if you’re not sure. But you better either have more butter on hand, or be close to the grocery store, because you’ll be making more!

Cinnamon Onion Butter


1 stick of butter (softened)
1/3 cup green onions (thinly sliced)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


1) Thinly slice your green onions, using the bulb and most of the tops. I usually stop chopping once I get close to the end of the tops, as it gets pretty flimsy. I like the firmer part, but that’s strictly up to you and your preferences.

2) Blend all ingredients and refrigerate to allow it to set up nicely.
