Truffled Mashed Potatoes
This is one of those recipes that will vary a lot depending on your own preference. You may prefer just a subtle hint of truffle, in which case you should cut back on the amount to about a half-tablespoon. On the other hand, if you're a lover of white truffle oil (ahem) you may want to start with two tablespoons and see if that seems adequate. This recipe will serve about six, depending on their appetites and what else you're serving.
Truffle oil is like fairy dust - it adds a bit of mysterious magic to anything you put it on!
To really make these mashed potatoes special, try using tender, creamy, fingerling potatoes!
Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add the peeled and quartered potatoes. Cook until the potatoes are fork tender. Drain them and mash.
Add heated milk and melted butter. Mix and fold thoroughly.
Add the truffle oil, salt, and pepper to taste.
