Potato and Black Truffle Gratin
This is a deliciously rich dish.. It's a perfect accompaniment to red meat, such as lamb, or prime rib. This recipe is adapted from one created by Bobby Flay.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Using a small saucepan, place the cream over a medium heat. Add a few shavings of the truffle. Bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat and let the cream/truffle mixture steep for at least 10 minutes.
Place a layer of the sliced potatoes in the bottom of a buttered baking dish and ladle 1/4 cup of cream over the top. Repeat this process four times.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Remove from the oven and let rest for about 10 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve warm.
