Truffled Potatoes

Truffled Potatoes
This is a dish that is both beautiful and delectable. The potato flavors are intensified by fresh truffles and softened by the cream. It's a dream of a dish - or a dish dreams are made of!
Ingredients:

6 Russet potatoes
1 ounce fresh truffles, white or black, grated
2 Tbsps. heavy cream
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 Tbsps. butter, melted



Directions:


Peel the potatoes and use a zester to "score" or "rib" the outside of each potato.

Cut the bottom off so that it has a flat surface on which to stand upright. Wrap in aluminum foil and bake until tender in a preheated oven, 350 degrees. This should take about 45 minutes.

Unwrap after baking and allow to cool until it can be handled.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.


Cut a cap from the top of the potatoes and scoop out the pulp, leaving enough of a wall to support the stuffing.

Mix the potato pulp with the grated truffles, cream, salt, and pepper.

Place the mixture in a pastry bag and pipe it into the hollowed-out cavity of each potato shell.

Replace the cap and brush the potato with butter. Place the potatoes on a baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, or until heated through and golden brown.
