Black Truffle Butter Uses

Serving Suggestion

Customers often ask us how we use our own butters, especially the Epicurean Black Truffle Butter. It is a fan favorite after all.

Below you will find several Black Truffle Butter uses, many of which we’ve tried ourselves and some others that come highly recommended.

There’s something about black truffles, butter, and beef that works so well.

After cooking your beef, whether it’s steak, tenderloin, or even filet mignon, let it rest for five minutes with a pat of Black Truffle Butter on top. Watch the butter melt and enjoy!

Liven up the holiday turkey with Black Truffle Butter.

Again, it can be as simple as finishing the turkey right on your plate with a pat of Black Truffle Butter. While you’re at it, use a touch of Black Truffle Butter in your holiday mashed potato recipe as well.

Other uses…

  • Place 4-5 tablespoons of butter beneath the turkey skin during the last 30 minutes of cooking.
  • Create a Black Truffle Butter and white wine gravy like the food editor for Gourmet magazine did.

There’s no animal protein that’s safe from the flavor powers of Black Truffle Butter.

Black Truffle Butter may be most often used as a finishing butter on beef and turkey, but we’ve tried it on grilled scallops and roasted chicken, too.

One more way to improve the already delicious mac and cheese: Black Truffle Butter.

A quick Google search for “Black Truffle Butter Mac and Cheese” and you’ll be amazed by what you find: mac and cheese with truffle shavings, mac and cheese made with truffle oil, and even mac and cheese made with Epicurean’s own Black Truffle Butter. Thank you 30 Days 30 Ways with Macaroni & Cheese for including our product in their White Truffle Mac and Cheese recipe. (This recipe calls for White Truffle Butter, but you can easily swap for Black.)

There are many other possible uses for Black Truffle Butter (we didn’t even get into the world of risotto and rice), so check back with us soon for more serving suggestions.
