Rosemary & Truffle Burger

If I was stranded on an island and could choose only one ingredient to have with me, it would be truffles. Aromatic, glorious flavor and very hard describe; this subterranean mushroom makes ordinary dishes magical. Will and I have made many a burger with truffles, as well as truffle fries, truffle pasta and I am sure there is more. This was a new burger recipe, including rosemary. The original doesn’t have mushrooms but I must have mushrooms on mine. If you haven’t experienced truffles, I am begging you too! You can buy small jars of oil or salt for reasonable prices.

Enjoy!

    You are making me SO hungry! I haven’t made it yet, but am going to rate the recipe on how much my mouth is watering right now. :) Do you have a suggestion about which truffle oil to buy? Which one do you purchase?

      :-) Yay, my plan is working! We usually get our truffle oil at La Buona Tavola at Pike Place Market. The brand we have is by Truffle Queen. I think it’s about $15 a bottle, which sounds like a lot but it lasts for a long time. White truffle oil tends to be better with lighter sauces and black truffle with meat and mushrooms. Either way you can’t go wrong. You can get black truffle salt at Central Market, they have it in their bulk seasonings section.
