Butter Sage Potatoes is a delicious side dish, ideal as part of a Sunday dinner. Imagine these babies alongside a roast chicken, joint of beef or leg of lamb. Honey, you’d but one happy diner let me tell you.
First cook the creamer potatoes in water on the stove. Pre-cooking the potatoes before placing them in the oven helps to create that wonderful crispy exterior. Once the potatoes are cooked they are doused in a hot butter mixture and placed in the oven. The butter mixture includes sage, garlic, olive oil and cheese. Adding cheese heightens the crispiness and the flavors combined is a delight!
I save this recipe for holidays and celebratory occasions, or dates, it’s richness should be respected.
