Truffled Deviled Eggs

Mitch Prensky, chef-owner at Supper (now closed) in Philadelphia, shared this recipe with us. Hard-boiled egg yolks are mashed with lemon juice, mayonnaise, truffle oil, and chives, then scooped into the hard-boiled egg whites and topped with slices of black truffle, for a fancy riff on deviled eggs.

What to buy: There are many counterfeit truffles out there, so be sure to purchase yours from a reputable source. They should be firm and dry to the touch, and always store them properly so that you get your money’s worth.

This two-tiered storage and carrying container securely cradles up to 24 egg halves without smushing the filling.
