salted brown butter honey spread

This is my new favorite thing.
Just miiiiight have added like 15 pounds to my thighs.
And over some warm homemade bread?

And I recommend doubling it at least so you can always have some in the fridge.

Salted and Honeyed Brown Butter Spread
From Smitten Kitchen.
1 stick unsalted butter, divided
1-2 tablespoons honey (I use the full 2 and make sure and use a good quality)
Few pinches good flaky sea salt

In a small saucepan, melt half the butter over medium heat.  Once melted, reduce heat to medium-low.  The butter will melt, then foam, then turn clear golden and finally start to turn brown and smell nutty.  Stir frequently, scraping up any bits from the bottom.  Remove from heat and cool to room temp.  While it's cooling, take the other half of the butter and let it soften slightly.
Whip the softened butter with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.  Slowly drizzle in the cooled browned butter.  Whip in the honey and sea salt until combined.
Slather all over warm bread and put the rest in the fridge to firm up.
