Truffled Egg Salad: Peel eggs and dice into 1/4-inch pieces. Combine mayonnaise, oil, salt, lemon juice and vinegar. Fold in eggs. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Mushroom Mousse: Heat oil in heavy-gauge pot on medium heat. Add mushrooms, onions, garlic, salt and thyme; cover. Sweat until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add 8 oz. stock; bring to simmer. Cover, remove from heat, and let stand 30 min. Puree mixture, then strain into bowl; discard solids.

Sprinkle gelatin over remaining 3 oz. stock in small bowl. Let stand 5 min. Heat bowl over simmering water until all gelatin is dissolved and mixture reaches 90°F. Stir gelatin mixture into mushroom mixture. Cool in an ice bath.

Gently fold whipped cream into mushroom mixture. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
