Two-fers!! Fried Sage Leaves/Sage Infused Bread

This may not be the prettiest picture, but don't judge a book by it's cover.

I had a lot of sage leaves leftover from my Easy Chicken Saltimbocca and didn't want to let them go to waste...I do like me some sage!

Recently Rachel Ray fried sage leaves in butter on one of her shows and I was more than game to give it a try.

This is so easy ya'll, soooo full of flavor!  You just have to give this a try, you will be addicted!  

20 sage leaves
1/2 stick butter

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat, once the butter begins to bubble, toss in the sage leaves.  Fry until the edges just begin to brown, them remove the leaves with a slotted spoon to a paper towel lined plate.

The added caveat here is the browned butter, infused with sage!  Brush or spoon the butter on crusty bread.  Bake the bread at 400 degrees F for about 5 minutes and you have a terrific alternative to garlic bread.

Katherine, Fried sage and sage infused bread...great ideas and we both love sage, using it with many, many dishes. It's great in bread and spread on bread, it just has to be great! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

I saw where she used anchovies in her sauce, and I tried it.

Was a good idea!

I bet those would work as a great garnish for all kinds of things.
