Truffle Oil Recipes

It was pretty hard for me to find exciting recipes on the web using truffle oil. I am not sure why. Is it the fact that my google search skills are not that great? Or maybe the food websites and bloggers that I usually follow are not very interested in using truffle oil?
I tend to blame it more on my search skills :)
I did find these three recipes though, that sounded interesting. I am not sure I will give any of them a try in the week to come, as it is back to school for my kids, and I don’t know if any of my readers have kids, but this time of the year is pretty busy. Let me put it this way, cooking just doesn’t happen that naturally. But I bookmarked them, and I will try them at the first occasion. I will share my experience with you.

I have to say that the reason why I like using truffle oil so much is because it complements my type of cooking very well.
I use it very often in my bechamel when I make lasagna. I also use it in my Alfredo & Bolognese sauce. I like using it when making risotto and I love using it as “topping” on vegetables or a nice piece of BBQed steak.

Depending on my mood I switch between the black truffle oil, that has more of an earthy taste, and the white truffle oil that has a stronger aroma and is sweeter in its flavor.
