How would you use Truffle Butter?
I recently just bought some truffle butter and was wondering if anyone had ideas or recipes that would utilize it well. how can i use it to make someone go "wow!"?
I just used some stirred into mashed potatoes tonight:
I always have some in the freezer. Some of the ways I use it - as a secret ingredient in hamburgers (putting a slice in the middle), melted on top of a grilled steak, in pan sauces for chicken or beef, to butter grilled cheese sandwiches, tossed with vegetables like crisp green beans or roasted asparagus, or as an addition to any recipe with mushrooms, including pasta dishes, stuffed mushrooms. or sauces.
As HeatherMB mentions, it's delicious with eggs too:
some ideas that come to my mind:
on scrambled eggs
on risotto as quine suggested
on a nice grilled salmon fillet
on a sizzling skirt or flank steak
in mashed potatoes
liveloveeat34 -- I see that this post is pretty old and just got bumped up. Was wondering how that truffle butter was! My dad also bought some at Costco a couple months ago, but I never ended up trying it (I don't live with my parents). I've actually never had truffles before, so if this product was good, maybe it'd be a nice way to be introduced to the taste . . . anyway if you're still hounding around, let me know!
