Directions
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the potatoes for 30 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Mash potatoes with a masher or a ricer, if you've got one
  3. Cook the butter and sage over a medium-low heat until the milk solids turn dark golden. This should take 4-5 minutes. Fish out the sage leaves once the brown butter darkens.

  5. Serve potatoes with an extra drizzle of brown butter and if you're feeling decorative, a sage leaf on top!
