This tip is almost stupidly simple, but it will save you time and a dish or two. Just place whatever amount of butter you need melted in your baking dish, set it in a warming oven, and let the heat do its thing. Once the butter is melted, pour it out of the dish and incorporate it into the rest of your ingredients. A small amount of left-behind butter will coat the dish, eliminating the need to grease. It’s easy, elegant, and a bit lazy.
