This recipe for Grilled Cheese with Truffle Oil, Arugula and Summer Truffles is a wonderful way to enjoy the subtle flavor of summer truffles. The Morbier cheese, spicy arugula, and nutty summer truffles, enhanced with black truffle oil make an exceptional sandwich.
four slices good quality, dense Italian bread
1 cup arugula
1 – 2 ounces summer truffles, sliced thin
Morbier cheese, about 5 ounces, sliced
2 teaspoons black truffle oil
Using a pastry brush, apply the black truffle oil to one side of each of the four pieces of bread, using about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the truffle oil. Heat a skillet to medium, and place two pieces of bread in the pan, with the truffle oil down. Cover the pieces of bread with Morbier cheese. Place the remaining two pieces of bread, truffle oil down, in the skillet and cover with sliced summer truffles. Drizzle the remaining black truffle oil over the summer truffles and sprinkle fleur de sel to taste. When the bread is golden brown and the cheese has melted, put the arugula on top of the summer truffles, and top with the slice of bread with the melted cheese. Slice the grilled cheese with truffle oil, arugula and summer truffle sandwiches in half and serve.
