Truffle recipes you can follow

They need not be expensive, especially for one like me who can eat it every day

When dining out, I would order first thing off the menu is anything with black or white truffles. They’re not always expensive. Some time ago, Potato Corner even came up with truffle-flavored fries and I would order them every week. I figured you don’t need imported, high quality truffles all the time when you just want to satisfy that craving.
