When indulging in richness, sin, excess (in whatever your poison of choice may be...), go all the way or not at all. Don't stop mid-way, backtrack or God Forbid, let guilt eat away at you. If you're going be consuming a casserole of cheesy and creamy pasta, or some egg noodles slicked with the gloss of lard and oily chilli sambal, or a huge slice of cake that’s smothered with frosting - eat it all, then bask in the satisfaction (maybe some smugness?) and joy it all brings! Don’t allow a good thing to be sullied by something silly like... guilt. 🤪
Mayo Slapped Grilled Cheese.
Leftover truffle-anything can be put to use here, the key is to be generous in both truffle & cheese, two strong and rich parties. I had leftover truffle paste lying around but it’s totally optional. You can also make a grilled cheese a la Ruth Reichl with tons of minced alliums and melty cheese!
I don't want to be the sort of person who tells you how much truffle or cheese you should be using in your meals... So this is more an idea/guide. Yes, use whatever you like in the amounts your heart truly desires. You know...
