About the recipe

This truffle butter is simply a combination of really good butter and truffle salt from Atlanta-based dry goods company Beautiful Briny Sea. Then the sky’s the limit on uses. Here are some suggestions: Open-face sandwiches of really good bread topped with fresh radish slices, arugula, minced herbs, hard boiled eggs or smoked salmon; adult grilled cheese made of rustic bread and Gruyere cheese smothered in truffle butter and grilled to perfection; scrambled eggs cooked with a pat of truffle butter and topped with minced chives; slathered on steak once it comes off the grill; or melted and drizzled over popcorn.

You could make this same flavored butter with any of the Beautiful Briny Sea salts. It would be terrific with French Picnic salt in a radish sandwich, or with Magic Unicorn in that grilled cheese.
