5 Everyday Dishes that Deserve Truffle Butter

Black truffle butter is one of those items that will forever change the way you cook. We love a dollop on a seared steak, whipped into mashed potatoes, scrambled with eggs, tossed with pasta, baked into dough, or tucked under the skin of a chicken before roasting  …. there is no wrong way to enjoy truffle butter. The simplest? Make truffle butter crostini or just enjoy it on bread.

Watch some of the D’Artagnan staff talk about how they use truffle butter.

Here are 5 easy ways to incorporate truffle butter into your cooking.

1. Pasta

Butter and pasta made better … with truffles. Using only 4 ingredients, 1 pan, and 15 minutes, this simple dish is kitchen alchemy at its best. A little pasta water and triple-cream soft cheese create a silky sauce that’s the perfect canvas for heady black truffle. Take it to the next level with only a little more effort with our mushrooms, pasta, and truffle butter breadcrumbs recipe.

2. Poultry

Spicy Buffalo-style wings are always a party favorite, but we’ve upped the flavor ante to make them even better. It sounds a little odd, but we assure you, these wings are going to become a game day staple. A little secret for roasted chicken and turkey: black truffle butter tucked under the skin.

3. Steak

Finishing a steak with truffle butter is one of the easiest tricks in the book. Our bacon wrapped filet mignon is a case in point, but you can let a pat of butter melt on any steak you’ve got. We also like to stir it into pan sauces and finish a sous vide steak with a short truffle butter baste.
