Cooking with sage has got to be one of the highlights of fall. One of the secrets to using sage is in knowing that a little goes a long way. Sage is best when cooked with a little bit of fat - whether it be brown butter or olive oil - which allows it to release its essential oils and become more aromatic. So keep that in mind when cooking with this fragrant herb. Here are some delicious ways of incorporating sage into your fall recipes:
1. Put it in Mashed Potatoes
Here's an easy way to kick up regular mashed potatoes: add some fried sage. This stellar recipe pairs mashed potato with pumpkin and sage for the ultimate Thanksgiving side.

3. Mix it into Meatloaf

4. Use it to Season Poultry
Sage is the perfect way to turn a regular roasted chicken into a delectable main course. The same holds true for turkey, especially if you stuff it with a sage-infused stuffing. Try rubbing dried sage on your bird along with salt and pepper before putting it in the oven.
