What to make with truffle butter?

I have 4oz white truffle butter and don't know what I should make with it. I don't want to make truffled mashed potatoes, but I was thinking maybe gnocchi or a great pasta dish. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  1. I've used it with scrambled eggs - a little on top after they're cooked. I haven't tried it for anything else...yet.

    1. Mashed potatoes is my favorite. It's a simple, hardy base that really lets the truffle flavor take center stage. Pasta too.

          Excellent thought. I've never considered that but I'm salivating even thinking about it!

        2. I like it in scrambled or shirred eggs.

          1. Aside from what has already been mentioned, I like a dab of it on top of a nicely grilled steak. I will also use it as a butter "finish" for pan sauces.
