Truffle Butter: What It Is, How to Use It
What is Truffle Butter?
Truffle butter is a staple item in any well-stocked kitchen. It’s easy to use and enhances the flavor of many dishes. Some chefs even prefer using it on its own, spreading it on bread or crackers.
Truffle butter goes beyond adding a splash of sophistication to dishes. This aromatic spread is versatile, lending a rich and earthy flavor to everything from pastas to risottos.
Here are 5 unique ways to Use Truffle Butter?
- Make Truffle Butter Burger:
For the juiciest, most flavorful burgers, bury a piece of chilled truffle butter in the center of each patty before grilling. As the butter melts, it will keep the center juicy while the outside develops a flavorful crust.
- Put Truffle Butter on a Chicken or Mutton:
Truffle butter is a delicious topping to use on Chicken or Mutton. Allow a pat of truffle butter to sit atop a perfect, seared Chicken or Mutton to amplify its savory, meaty flavor.
