Red Potatoes & Truffle Oil.

I have been a fan of truffle oil for a long time and admittedly, have enjoyed it many (too many) times on really delicious french fries.  I'd never cooked with it myself though.  Last week my favorite grocery store sampled potatoes fried in black truffle oil. I bought a bottle on the spot and went home to create my own recipe. There were no leftovers.

  • 1 pound baby red potatoes, halved
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • sea salt & fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 T black truffle oil
  • freshly grated asiago cheese
Bring a pot of water to a boil; add potatoes and cook just until tender. Drain potatoes and transfer to a skillet prepared with cooking spray.  Sprinkle potatoes with rosemary, salt & pepper, and cook 4 to 5 minutes, until potatoes just start to brown.  Add truffle oil and continue cooking 3 more minutes.  Transfer to a serving bowl and generously add freshly grated asiago cheese.  Toss gently and enjoy!
