If you’ve never tried truffle oil, I strongly urge you to do so as quickly as humanly possible! It is one of my alllll time favorite flavors. It’s hard to describe what it tastes like exactly, but it does have a very distinct flavor. The closest thing I can compare it to is garlic. You can buy it on Amazon and if you’re lucky I’ve seen it sold at Target, Walmart, and Hy-Vee…but if you see it BUY IT!! Because it likely won’t be there the next time you go back for it. My favorite way to use it is the recipe below, but I have also used it in white sauces, pastas, meats, and on pizza crust. I’ve used it on something as simple as mac-n-cheese to something fancy as mixing it in with hollondaise sauce & drizzling it over scallops. The possibilities are endless! Enjoy!
1 c mayo
1/2 c sour cream
1/4 tsp fresh cracked pepper
1/4 c grated parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1 lg clove minced garlic
1/4 c fresh chopped herbs like chives, parsley or rosemary
1 bag of your favorite french fries (unseasoned) or make your own roasted potato wedges
In a bowl mix the mayo, sour cream, pepper, truffle oil, parmesan cheese, lemon juice, and garlic together with a whisk until it is evenly incorporated. Top with fresh chopped herbs, cracked pepper, and additional parmesan cheese if desired. Set in the fridge until it’s ready to serve.
Make french fries according to the package, making sure to not crowd the pan so they roast instead of steam. You could make homemade roasted potato wedges instead of the fries, which is actually my preferred way! But if you’re in a hurry store bought fries are just great!! When they’re done baking, drizzle with a little truffle oil right after they’re removed from the oven.
