How to butter a dish or a mould easily
Often when making gratins, crumbles or other oven-cooked dishes, you will need to butter the dish or mould. To butter (or grease) means to rub inside the mould with a knob of butter to prevent the mixture sticking too much.

Instead of putting a knob of butter in the dish and wiping with paper, here is a smart and quicker way.

Remove butter from wrapper, and put in a dish. Use the butter paper to rub inside the dish or mould.

Usually, there is enough butter still on the paper so you shouldn't need to add any more.

After use, wrap butter in its paper again.
