Recipe tips
Browned butter is easy to make, but does require paying attention so it doesn’t burn. If possible, use a light-colored pan so you can see the color change as it cooks. Swirl the pan around or stir often.

In small pan, melt butter over medium heat. When butter is foamy, add sage. Continue cooking, frequently stirring pan until light brown and fragrant, 3–4 minutes. Serve immediately over your favorite dish and enjoy!
