This creamy truffle mac and cheese is a rich, gourmet treat, yet so easy to whip up.
Different varieties and brands of truffle oil vary immensely in strength and aroma. If you know yours to be strong, start with 1/4 teaspoon and work your way up. Always start with the lesser amount and work towards your desired strength. You can't untruffle a batch of mac!
You can really use any variety of cheese here that you like--I like how the sharpness of a white cheddar marries the elegant earthy tones of the truffle, as well as the sophisticated alabaster hue. But if you like, you can absolutely use regular cheddar, a bit of Gruyère, Havarti.. whatever!
