Do the Truffle Shuffle

Freshly shaved truffles are one of those luxury items that just screams “This is for rich people only.” Priced from hundreds to thousands of dollars a pound, depending on the species, these musky mushrooms do not make for an affordable meal. But us financially impaired people appreciate good food, too. So in the tradition of Cubic Zirconia, knock-off designer handbags, and generic antidepressants, lets stock our pantries with truffle salt and truffle oil and tell rich people that we don’t need their stinking (literally) fungus, shall we?

For under twenty bucks you can get either the earthy oil or the salt and add the delicious depth, earthiness and complexity of truffles to your favorite dishes. We truffle salt our deviled eggs and avocado toasts, and drizzle the oil atop salads and even in our cocktails (see crazy recipe below and picture above).

We’ve gathered a few favorite recipes that use truffle oil and/or salt. It’s sure to have your diners thinking you’re a real funghi. Get it??
