Ok, I just want to say that I’m absolutely giddy about this recipe, well honestly it’s not a recipe but more like a simple how to, but imagine how gorgeous a platter of these pretty sage embossed potatoes would look on your holiday table!

I saw this in a BHG magazine on party foods, and I think this would be the perfect side dish to one of your holiday parties, it’s so eye catching!

First, get some fresh sage, I still have a ton growing in my garden, so I just went out and grabbed some.

Next, buy a bunch of those cute fingerling potatoes, wash them, pat dry, then cut in half lengthwise.

Toss them into a bowl and coat with olive oil, a little pepper and some good flaky salt like Maldon.

I had sixteen potatoes, thirty two halves and I used 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Take a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper, very important, you must line with parchment, now place one sage leaf on each potato half then quickly flip it over onto the parchment, the sage leaf will stick as it cooks.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15- 20 minutes, depending on your oven.

You’re looking for tender and golden, so lift a few up and check for that nice color just to make sure.

  1. I would love to make these to bring to a dinner party. I’d like to know if this dish is meant to be served hot and how you would recommend reheating once at the location? Thank you, I adore your recipes!

    • If you make them ahead of time I would warm them up Jenny, just put them on a rimmed baking sheet, single layer at 400 degrees for maybe 10 minutes, you just want them warm not piping hot

  2. They look beautiful! I am curious, though, are they overwhelmingly sage-y for the amount of potato involved?

  3. oh man, i love these; i am so making some with our garden potatoes!

  4. Ohhhkay… Sage, potatoes AND they’re gorgeous?! I can’t wait to make these!

  5. You ahve made me happy w/ this gorgeous adding sage leaves atop a cornbread etc..these are so appetizing while being beauteous!

  6. I want to know what you eat/drink before bedtime that helps you dream up such fantastic ideas!! What a beautiful side for the table. I have plenty of sage leaves in the garden and they will be used this Thanksgiving. I am definitely going to make sure I save this recipe — but that really isn’t a problem I always save yours. Grazie e buona giornata!

  7. They look so pretty, Marie., and would make a nice side dish for many occasions.
    I also find good recipes in BHG magazines. I’ve been a subscriber for years and years.

  8. You always have the best ideas, Marie. This is simple to make and so delicious too. Now I know what to do with all those sage leaves in my garden.
