Butter+Olive Oil Spread

My family especially my kids love to eat bread. Eversince my eldest goes home straight from school, the olive oil spread consumption has gone up ! One tub of bertolli olive oil spread can only last slightly over a week and one tub costs me $7+ :-( So decided to be 'frugal' since butter and olive oil are the house's staple to make my own. The good thing about this is that I can control the quality of butter that I use. For this, the recipe is really simple.

What you need:
250g (9 oz) salted butter, softened
1 C olive oil

What you do:
1. Use a mixer and blend the butter till creamy
2. Slowly add oil little by litte and mix till well combined, it will look somewhat soupy
3. Pour butter+oil mixture into a clean container and refrigerate it till it reaches the spreadable consistency

Note: You can add a little bit of salt if you using unsalted butter
