Sage Browned Butter Home Fries

Recipe and Images Provided by Speckled Palate

Our family, including our beloved Grandma Lorraine, who famously told us that “there’s not much in life that can’t be made better with butter,” has made developing the perfect batch of butter our family legacy. This goal is more than 125 years in the making, a passion passed on from generation to generation, including our children, who make up generation six.

The end result is a line high butterfat butter in multiple, dreamy flavors, from sea salt butter to the garlic herb variety.

You can grab the rolled version of our butter — or the classic sticks you’ll often find on store shelves — from your local market or specialty store, by using our location tool.

So, without further ado, here’s our recipe for Sage Browned Butter Home Fries:

Prep Time: 15
Servings: 50


  • 3 small russet potatoes, scrubbed, peeled and cut into ½” cubes (about 3 ½ cups when cut)
  • 5 tablespoons Minerva Dairy Unsalted butter
  • 1 bunch fresh sage (about 20 leaves)
  • ¾ teaspoons kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt-free Creole seasoning


  1. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the butter over medium heat. Add the sage, and let the two cook.
  2. When the sage begins to crisp up and the butter begins browning, break the sage into tiny bits.
  3. Add the diced potatoes and seasoning.
  4. Cooking over medium heat, move the potatoes occasionally so they all are able to brown in the browned butter mixture. This should take 20-30 minutes, depending on the heat and your stovetop.
  5. Serve these Sage Browned Butter Home Fries warm with additional crispy sage, and enjoy!
