Eggs With Truffle Oil: 15 Recipes You Can Do Right Now

Are you looking for a way to improve the flavor of your morning meals?

I understand—believe me! I get just as tired of normal fried or scrambled eggs as you do, and I’m often looking for a way to make my breakfast taste a little bit better.

Did you know truffle oil is an amazing way to do just that?

I’ve been a big fan of truffle oil eggs for a couple of years now, and I’m happy to report that there are a ton of different ways you can make these two ingredients work well for you. Whether you’re looking for fried eggs, poached eggs, or scrambled eggs truffle oil is a great ingredient to add to the mix to give your breakfast a lot more flavor than you could ever imagine.

But what makes eggs with truffle oil so special, anyway?

Eggs are a comfort food that reminds many of us of our childhoods or warm cozy mornings with a hearty breakfast. There’s something equally comforting about the rich, savory flavor of truffle oil, too. When the two ingredients are combined, whether on their own or with a lot of other delicious food items, the result is really something special.

So, are you ready to learn about making truffled eggs a part of your morning meal? Let’s get started!

What is Truffle Oil?

Truffle oil is a popular ingredient you’ve probably heard of if you’ve been paying much attention to recent trends in cooking. It’s been touted by a lot of chefs as one of their favorite new ingredients, while others have sworn it off entirely, claiming it to be a problematic option that doesn’t do much for cooking. Although you might have heard some bad things about truffle oil, you can use it in your dishes easily when you understand a little bit more about it.

truffle oils

The controversy behind truffle oil revolves around what it is made out of. Less expensive types of truffle oil are comprised entirely of chemical ingredients which are added to a low-quality olive or canola oil to give it a flavor that mimics that of a truffle. With these types of oils, there is nothing “truffle” about them. They contain no actual truffle whatsoever, and they, in fact, are full of unwanted additional chemicals that many people choose to avoid in their food altogether.

Real truffle oil should always contain real truffles as one of the main ingredients on the label. If it doesn’t say that the truffle oil was made with actual black or white truffles, then it isn’t real and you should stay away from it in your cooking. A nice mid-range truffle oil shouldn’t cost you too much, but it will still be made with real truffle, which helps you save a little money without having to sacrifice the quality of your ingredients in the meantime.

A very high-quality truffle oil should be made with extra-virgin olive oil, to begin with. This oil is then infused with pieces of truffle meat and skin cut from actual black or white truffles that were, for whatever reason, not sold whole at the truffle market. Many times, these truffles might have been too small to fetch a high price on truffle markets, or they might have been harvested at the wrong time of year or from the wrong location for them to be worth a lot of money. In these instances, the truffles are sliced and sent to be used in items like truffle oil, truffle salt, and more.

To be sure you have a really nice truffle oil, look for pieces of the truffle still in the bottle. The oil shouldn’t be swimming with truffle bits, but there should be a few settled into the bottom of the bottle to prove that real truffles were actually used in the creation of the oil. This is a great way to tell you’re working with a good quality ingredient.

Tips and Tricks for Making Truffle Oil and Egg Recipes

Cooking with truffle oil might seem like it’s going to be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be! When you follow these tips and tricks for creating truffle oil and egg recipes, you shouldn’t have any trouble working with these ingredients to create a delicious dish you’ll want to show off right away.

  • Choose a good truffle oil. When you prepare your eggs truffle oil is a delicious addition to your meal, but it’s easy to want to buy a cheap version. See the section above for more detail about how to pick a good quality truffle oil.
  • Choose hen’s eggs for most recipes, unless otherwise stated. Although some recipes can be interchangeable, the cooking times may vary quite a lot if you opt to work with a different type of egg. Some recipes may call for quail or duck eggs, however, so pay attention to the specific ingredients for each.
  • Remember that a little truffle oil goes a long way. If you’re using a high-quality truffle oil with real truffle ingredients, you won’t need much to get the flavor of truffles throughout your dish. However, if you really love the taste, don’t be afraid to add more whenever you see fit.
  • You don’t always have to cook truffle oil for it to be a great ingredient. In many recipes, the oil is simply added in during the final stages of cooking to give your food a punch of flavor. However, in other recipes, it is mixed into the ingredients and cooked throughout. Both options are great, and you can have fun experimenting with truffle oil however you like.
  • Anytime you cook with eggs, the softer you make them, the better they’ll be! Even if you like very well done fried eggs, be sure to cook eggs according to the directions in the recipes listed below. The softness of a medium or lightly cooked egg combined with the savory flavor of truffle oil is an incredible experience.
