I've been wanting some of this for a long time.. I don't know what it is about all things truffle that I find irresistible. Oh wait, yes I do. It makes everything DECADENT and AMAZING! It turns a regular dish into something rich and fancy. After months and months of wanting some truffle oil, and shying away from the hefty price tag every time, i finally snapped up a bottle. Oh I am so glad I did.
So the other night, I broke out the oil and made a truffle grilled cheese with a sharp aged cheddar and a hint of Fleuron cheese. It. Was, Incredible. I also made a side of potato wedges and some Utah Style Fry Sauce with a Sexy Spin..
I made the grilled cheese like I would any other.. I buttered the bread, and added just a half a teaspoon truffle oil to each side of the bread and a bit to the pan. It made all the difference. With truffle oil, a little goes a long way.
As for the fry sauce.. have you noticed it is all the rage lately? Well if you've ever been to Utah.. then you've known about it forever... I think it's also referenced in the movie Step Brothers as "fancy sauce." There are alot of variations of it.. but the base is 1 part ketchup to 2 parts mayo. A common ingredient is a teaspoon of pickle juice and a dash of onion powder. Sounds gross, but don't knock it til you try it. It is the best on fries.
For my sexy version of Fry Sauce.. I combined the W hotel's "sexy ketchup" with fry sauce. It's a basic fry sauce recipe, a dash of onion powder, and a few shakes of hot sauce. TASTY!
Next up.. truffle mac 'n' cheese and truffle parmesan garlic fries!
