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 permit it to steep for about 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 the dish for 30-40 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
Remove from the oven and permit the dish to rest for about 10 minutes before cutting into squares.
