Question Truffle oil


Santa brought me a bottle of white truffle oil for Christmas.

Any one have any ideas on how I should use it?
I've never tried it before so I don't even know what it tastes like.

Thanks!
Trish

Its great on steak with mushrooms! saute your mushrooms and just when they are done and ready to put on the steak, add a little drizzle of truffle oil

add them to the top of a fried egg cooked in bacon grease, just a little drizzle on top.

add them to scrambled eggs right before they are cooked

add them to the soups like potato leek soup right before eating, or even wild mushroom soups (in the bowl before eating, not in the pot while cooking)

on popcorn! cook some kernals in a little duck fat, and when done toss in a little salt and truffle oil

drizzle on a grilled portabello mushroom along with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar reduction

toss some fresh fried french fries with truffle oil

in the spring top freshly steamed asparagus with hollondaise seasoned with a touch of truffle oil

THANK YOU!

The asparagus sounds great and so do the mushrooms.
Can't wait to try it.

Chestnut risotto......it's as though the two ingredients were meant to be together.

Thanks Vera! Ya always come up with good ideas.

I wonder if I can find chestnuts in this part of the USA... We used to have a tree, years ago but, haven't seen any since.

smiles, T

White Truffle Oil

My favorite way of enjoying it is to lightly drizzle some over good old plain mashed potatoes.
