Potato, Parmesan and Sage bake

A winter veggie warmer

This recipe is a simple and easy way to use potatoes that look impressive and taste delicious. Using three ingredients that are easily included in your weekly shopping list.

An easy-bake dish which is ideal for sharing, accompanied by a robust salad or as a side dish to roast meats – lamb, chicken, pork. 

The addition of the parmesan cheese gives the potato bake an Italian-style flavour plus the winter herb sage provides a strong aromatic flavour.

Sage is a very undervalued herb – generally considered to be used in stuffings. Make this herb centre stage – fresh chopped leaves used in sauces, butter or even use as a tea infusion for a relaxing cuppa.
