Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Simmer potatoes in large pot of boiling salted water (enough cold water to cover by at least 2 inches) about 20 to 30 minutes or until tender when pierced with a fork; remove from heat and drain.
  2. Mash potatoes with a potato masher or ricer until there are no lumps.
  3. Add half and half; blend well (the amount of liquid needed may vary, so add slowly until potatoes are fluffy and still have body).
  4. Add butter, cream cheese and truffle oil.
  5. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve topped with shaved truffles, if desired.

Oh, Rita! Lovely potatoes! I bought both black and white truffle oil a few months ago and only now mustered up the courage to use them in something... I was afraid I wouldn't like them, but HAD to find out. I love them! And this recipe's ingredients amount to a totally decadent side to any number of main dishes. We had it with fried chicken... how's that for incongruity! ;) Next I'll splurge on an actual truffle to garnish this, but for now I added sliced scallion tops which added a nice twangotope. Bet you're wondering if twangotope's a word... it's not, but it seemed to work for me at the moment. *rofl* Anyway, I'll definitely make these repeatedly. Thank you, Rita, for another winner!

Great...Like chia I agree the truffle oil gave this an earthy, almost rustic flavor. First time using truffle oil and I was glad it was money worth spent on that oil!! Served with Italian Roast Pork Loin (Italian Roast Pork Loin) Thank You Rita L.! December 10, 2005

i love this dish and make it often. the addition of the truffle oil gived the potatoes an earthy flavor. this time i used yukon gold potatoes, excellent side dish to roasted pork tenderloin.
