11 WAYS TO UPGRADE YOUR TAKEOUT

At this point, we’re willing to bet you’ve had your fair share of takeout food. And on top of that, you probably have an exhaustive list of your preferred restaurants to order in from. We know we do: *takes a bite from a Frank Pepe’s slice*.

But let’s face it, sometimes eating the same thing over and over again - even though it’s delicious - can get a little boring. And we certainly can’t accept ‘boring’. Who else gets bummed after an unsatisfactory meal? We sure do. Behold a truffle twist to all of your takeout classics to ensure that your food is in fact never, ever boring. 

Don’t worry, we’re not going to get too wild here. We know that the whole reason for takeout food is the allure of instant gratification, ease, and supporting our favorite restaurants. 

Whether you’re ordering food for just yourself, family, or friends, check out these 11 ways to upgrade your takeout: 

PIZZA:

Anyone else have Pizza Fridays? A truffle lover should know that pizza is one of our favorite ways to use as a vehicle for truffles. It’s the perfect landing site for shavings of fresh truffles, dashes of truffle oil, or a dollop of truffle sauce. You can truly add truffles to any slice of pizza but if it’s your first time, we recommend a white pie. That’s right. Keep it simple. That beautiful gleaming slice of white pizza will practically sing when truffles touch it. Two products you should try out are our truffle sauces that are pesto-like consistency. You can spread it across the whole slice, tiny drops throughout, or even use it as a dip. Wait, did we just say that? Yes, it definitely has happened... especially for the crust.
 

PASTA:
Another one of our classic go-to truffle combinations is adding truffles to pasta. The variety of pasta alone makes for a very special, beautiful experience each time with truffles. The different shapes and sizes, sauces, and texture…put quite frankly, pasta is magical. We’re going to lean on that side of simplicity and suggest adding truffles to cleaner, more subtle flavors of pasta. Think sage and butter ravioli, carbonara, or cacio e pepe. Tossing in sliced truffle pieces that are swimming in fragrant olive oil will make each bite all that more luxurious.
SUSHI:
There’s a lot of fun to be had with sushi, nigiri, and sashimi when it comes to truffles. There’s been an increase of popularity in the use of truffles in this cuisine and we’d like to attribute it to the umami characteristics from a truffle. That being said, you may not find truffle offerings at your local restaurant (yet) but that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying it at home. Our truffle soy sauce is the easiest way to incorporate truffles into your bites without any hassle.
TACOS
There’s no taco we met that we didn’t love. Soft tacos, hard tacos, standing tacos or sitting tacos -- we love them all. Especially when it packs a punch. Add some dabs of our truffle hot sauce to give that spicy flavorful kick you deserve.
BAGELS
Ah, bagels. They’ve gotten quite the buzz recently and haven't they? READ OUR BAGEL ARTICLE HERE. We’re still on the fence about the NY vs LA bagel controversy. But what we do know is that a bagel is the perfect way to start your Sunday morning. A steaming hot cup of coffee, a side of pulpy (or non-pulpy…we know it’s a touchy subject) orange juice, and a warm bagel with smooth cream cheese… nothing gets better than tha- oh wait. It does, with truffles. We went for salting our fatty delicious cream cheese with a touch of truffle salt for that extra pop of flavor.
FRENCH FRIES
Did you know that French fries are the most ordered food in the U.S during the Covid pandemic? Of course, not shocking at all, since they are in fact, the best. And for our truffle lovers out there, truffle fries are where it’s at - IYKYK. If you’re left with boring regular fries, have no fear, truffle & cheese seasoning is here.

BURGER
Now, we might ruffle some feathers when we say this, but we feel that a burger needs ketchup. And better yet, truffle ketchup. We’re pretty sure you saw that one coming. But it is really, really good. Does anyone order hot dogs? If you do, this applies to them as well - we’re equal opportunists here.

EGG ROLLS
How do you eat your egg rolls? We love dunking them into hot mustard to get that incredible crunchy, fresh, and spicy bite. But next level is our truffle hot mustard. It adds a layer of flavor that you didn’t know you need.

FRIED CHICKEN
Hear us out: fried chicken with truffle honey is insane. We repeat, fried chicken with truffle honey is insane. You’ve probably had the classic fried chicken-maple syrup combo at one point in your life (if you haven't, definitely try that too), but truffle honey hits it out of the park. The earthy sweet sticky deliciousness drizzled on salty fried chicken is… well… you tell us.

PAD THAI
Pad Thai receives the runner-up award for the second most ordered food in the U.S. during the pandemic, and we’re here for it. Dash on Truffle Zest for an outstanding truffle twist - you’ll probably never go back to plain pad thai again.

WINGS
So you could just dash some white truffle oil onto your wings for a truffle pop. But right here is the recommendation that hits the wow-factor: You’re going to take that delicious creamy ranch or blue cheese dressing you’re dunking your wings in and you’re going to swirl in a bit of white truffle oil. The garlic-earthy-silky addition to your dip is going to knock your socks off.
BONUS! Special Sauces to save your takeout
Let’s face it! We’ve all been there before. There’s a new restaurant on your delivery app that looks amazing with dishes that make your mouth water more with every ingredient in the description. Then the food arrives…
Whether it’s under-seasoned, over-seasoned, dry, not spicy enough, whatever the case, sometimes you just need to add a little zhush. We’ve got you covered because we’ve all been there before. (In our case, a few dozen times too many!)

TRUFFLE MAYO
For saving dry, overcooked burgers and sandwiches with little to no flavor. Mix your favorite Mayo with a few dashes of white truffle oil.

SPICY TRUFFLE MAYO
Because dry fried chicken and wings is a big no-no. RECIPE HERE.

TRUFFLE SPECIAL SAUCE
(Truffle Hot Ketchup + Your fave Mayo) - For a classic throwback with a modern, luxurious twist.

TRUFFLE TERIYAKI
(Truffle Soy + Truffle Honey) - Wings, dumplings, spicy ramen - this single sauce has rescued them all with the perfect combo of salty and sweet.

BLACK TRUFFLE OIL VINAIGRETTE
We have had way too many salads with great ingredients and lackluster dressing. Let your lettuce and veggies shine with our bright, yet earthy Truffle Vinaigrette. Mix a few dashes on black truffle oil into your favorite vinaigrette.
