Mama Karlic’s Black Truffle Frittata 🍳

Cooking time: 15 minutes
Serves: 3-4

Probably the most traditional truffle dish from Istria, Croatia’s world-famous truffle region, perfected by generations of the Karlić family. The heat of the eggs releases the aromas locked in the truffles, letting them work their black magic.


25g shaved fresh winter black truffles or 50g fresh summer black truffles (if fresh truffles are not in season substitute with preserved ones)

50g butter

30g grated hard aged cheese (Pag Cheese or Parmesan is ideal)

30g Tartufata truffle spread

6 eggs

A pinch of salt flakes such as Nin Bio Fleur de Sel


Melt the butter and add tartufata truffle spread

When the butter starts to bubble, mix in beaten eggs and half the grated cheese

When eggs are cooked, sprinkle with grated cheese and salt flakes

Shave fresh truffles onto the warm eggs to release their magical aroma

Serve immediately
