Truffled Eggs Have Changed My Life.

by simplylife on November 6, 2011

Truffled eggs.  Until this Saturday at about noon I had no idea what they even were.  Now my whole world has changed and I can’t think about much else but them.  Creamy, yet light and fluffy, these were the most memorable eggs I may have ever eaten.  As I ate each bite, I poked around the eggs,  sure the rich, creamy flavor was from some type of melted cheese.

Was it the charming French ambiance?  My adoring patient husband who sits patiently while I not only take pictures of my food, but talk about it the whole time?  The endless cups of strong coffee by my side?  I was sure there had to be some type of spell this restaurant put over each plate to transform a seemingly simple dish of eggs, asparagus and bread into something so gourmet.

I went home and immediately looked up recipes to figure out what the hidden magical ingredient was.

Truffle oil.  I know, I know.  You’re screaming “The name of the dish is truffled eggs, of course the distinct ingredient is truffle oil!”  To be honest, that thought crossed my mind, but being someone who had previously been sure that something trendy and expensive couldn’t be worth the high price-tag, I was sure that couldn’t be it. I am now biting my tongue.  And looking for discounts on my new favorite ingredient.


Clearly, my dish was delicious, but it wasn’t the only star of the show.  My husband ordered the Sandwich Cubano which was filled with the bold flavors of gruyere, pork, ham and pickles.  It was a an unbeatable flavor combination!

For those of you in or visiting the Boston area, I would definitely check-out Gaslight Brasserie for your next brunch! (FYI, the people here don’t even know who I am; I just like to share something good when I’ve found it!)



~Have you ever had anything made with truffle oil?  Did you notice a difference in flavor?

    I’ve had truffle oil drizzled over “gourmet” mac ‘n’ cheese at a couple of restaurant’s in Boston, and it’s amazing! I heart truffle oil too 😉

    I was smiling to myself while reading this post because I actually hate truffle!! My whole family loves truffle oil, truffle salt, etc. They think I’m crazy, but I can’t stand the smell of it.

  • Shannon

    I found truffle oil at Marshall’s once or twice, so I’d check there! i drizzled it on a pizza with asparagus, goat cheese and an egg and that was delicious… but too often i forget about special ingredients like that–it’s a shame!

    • Simply Life

      Oh that is such a great idea- thanks!

    I’ve been to Gaslight (their croque monsieur was pretty bomb, I have to say), but I’ve never had truffle oil or truffled anything. Evidently I am missing out!

  • Joanne

    I always meant to try gaslight before I left boston but somehow never got to it! Man, how I wish I had!

  • Mom

    Both meals look scrumptious!!! I have never heard of truffled eggs, but after reading this, I won’t pass them up given the opportunity!

  • Lena @Fit on the Rocks

    I have not made anything with truffle oil, but I love it so! Truffled mac and cheese, truffled fries, truffled EVERYTHING. It adds such a distinct taste and tastes so so good!

  • Jamie Walker

    I know how you’re feeling — truffle oil is like the BEST thing ever — and I always feel so funny when I’m sitting there wondering how it can make everything and anything taste soooo good!

    • Simply Life

      I’m glad I’m not alone in doing this!

  • Emily @ A Cambridge Story

    ooh i now really want to try this restaurant! I didn’t realize you were in Boston!

  • Stephanie

    I’ve never had truffles that weren’t made out of chocolate! Your eggs have definitely piqued my interest in the other kind of truffles…

  • Tigerfish

    I have not tried truffle oil before but why do I always sense rejection of truffle oil from famous food chefs/restaurateurs?

  • Asmita

    I haven’t tried truffle oil yet but have heard it has a metallic taste. I have made Ina Garten’s recipe tagliarelle with white truffle butter. It is so delicious , my friends were short of licking their plates. The eggs do look good.
