Roasted Potatoes with Fried Sage, Brown Butter Recipe The nutty flavor of brown butter, coupled with the earthy sage is wonderful. Even just one teaspoon of the brown butter and fried sage provides an amazing amount of flavor to all those potatoes! Have fun with the fried sage brown butter and add it to your pasta or noodle dishes.

  • about 2 lbs potatoes, washed, cubed
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • handful of fresh sage leaves
  • about 2-3 tablespoons butter, if you have clarified butter-even better

1. Preheat oven to Roast 400ºF.

2. In large bowl, toss cut potatoes, about 3 sage leaves (minced) and enough olive oil to coat potatoes. Add salt to taste

3. Place potatoes on sheet pan and roast in oven for about 30-45 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn potatoes at least once during the roasting period.

4. In frying pan, gently melt butter. Don’t melt the butter too quick, or it will burn.

5. Once butter melts and starts to bubble, add the rest of the sage leaves. Fry sage leaves on both sides, until crispy.

6. Keep an eye on the butter as you fry the sage & the butter browns. Skim as needed (using clarified butter will reduce this step). Take butter off heat when it is nicely brown, think a rich caramel color, and strain the butter to remove any sediment.

7. Toss potatoes with the brown butter and fried sage leaves.
