  1. Combine all ingredients except the bread and wine and mix carefully. Then add the bread and wine and mix just enough to add it to the butter. It is good to add some liquid like white wine to the butter because it blends with the butter during cooking and cuts the fattiness of the dish. However, bread is added to absorb the wine, which could not be incorporated into the butter when cold.
