Fillings and Toppings
Flavorful Finishings with Butterball Farms
Butterball® Farms has more than 60 years of experience in crafting innovative and delectable products to put the finishing touches on your dishes. We offer a wide variety of customizable fillings and toppings for any occasion. Our in-house team of experts work with you through every step of the development process, from concept to full-scale production, helping you make your desired flavor a reality.
What Are Fillings?
Our fillings can be used in a range of foods, from chicken to pastries and anything in between. We design our fillings to complement your dish without overpowering it.
Some of our most popular products include butter with breadcrumbs and cheese for a gooey and creamy filling for salmon. Our chili pepper adobo filling pairs great with chicken and is often mixed with breadcrumbs and garlic.
We can create fillings in ready-to-go dollops with extras like spinach or lemon herb already mixed, or you can order a base filling and mix in whatever additional ingredients you choose.
What Are Toppings?
Are you looking to layer in more flavor to your product and make your servings look even better on the plate? At Butterball, we are always excited to innovate new toppings to create the perfect blend to complement your product.
We can do any topping you like, from sweet to savory. Some of our most popular toppings include cinnamon and brown sugar for breadsticks and blue cheese butter topping for steak. We also have an ever-increasing variety of products for Mexican dishes, including chimichurri, baja, suiza enchilada, and chipotle lime.
Our customizable butters also have endless combinations and applications. Make your oysters shine with butter featuring spinach, breadcrumbs, garlic, or any combination of our other flavors. Those combinations can also be great with chicken breast, just like our sun-dried tomato topping.

You can also mix in additional ingredients, such as mustard, ginger, or flaxseed, to add extra flavor to your products.
