I want to make a panini with mushrooms and truffle oil. What is the best way to ensure the mushrooms will have the most flavor from the oil?

Should I sautee them in the oil before "panining" the sandwich? Should I just marinate the mushrooms in oil raw? Should I put the oil on the bread right before? Should I just panini the mushrooms and add the oil at the end?

Definitely saute the mushrooms first in either butter or olive oil. Use the truffle oil only sparingly as its flavor is rather intense. Do note that 99% of the "truffle oil" you will find is synthetic and seldom contains any actual truffle. If it does have a tiny bit of truffle visible it's probably an "estivo" or summer truffle which has practically no flavor.
