Preserved Black Truffles...Recipes?

I have a jar of preserved black truffles I received as a birthday present. I have (3) truffles in the jar.

I would like to make my boyfriend something wonderful for our New Year's Day dinner tomorrow night. I know that eggs, pasta and potatoes are winners with truffles, but I have never cooked with them before.

Any suggestions? I think I should save one truffle for eggs on Monday morning...really want to try that. But what about dinner? Any recipes with filet perhaps? Or should I go with something fattier to bring out flavor of truffles?

And since these are preserved truffles, should I use some black truffle oil also in recipe? And at what point do you add the truffles for maximum impact?

Thank you everyone! I appreciate the help!

  1. They should have plenty of flavor with out the addition of oil. With Filet a slice of Foie Gras Terrine, a few slices of Truffle and a Cognac-Demi glace with the juice from the Truffles topping the steaks should fit the bill.
