    CHRISSYG's Note:

    Wait till you try this recipe! OMG! You can buy small bottles of white truffle oil for (ahem) not that much money, well considering how much money truffles cost! The flavor is TDF! This is NOT mashed potatoes! This is creamy, silky, warm, earthy decadent! Nice with a great thick steak and a bottle of Syrah! Servings are for two, this can be doubled-- Oh Feb 2003 Bon Appetit

      I know that these are not supposed to be like mashed potatoes, but I did cut back considerably on the milk (to about 1/3 cup). I think my potatoes were a little less than 14 oz total weight as well so a cup of milk would have resulted in potato slush rather than silk. The first time I made them I didn't put them in the food processor--you can tell by the first photo that they're not nearly as appealing. I made them again and did use the food processor and they were beautiful in appearance and taste.

      I didn't have white truffle oil but I did have white truffle butter on hand so I substituted that. Texture was creamy, even silky, potatoes were delicious! Everyone loved them! I did have to boil the potatoes a bit longer than specified. Great recipe!
