2 T extra-virgin olive oil††††††††† 1 Tablespoon coarse sea salt



Instructions:Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Scrub and dry the potatoes. Pour the oil into a heavy ovenproof skillet, preferably of cast iron, and spread evenly. Lay the sage leaves flat on the oiled surface, completely covering the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the salt over the sage. It may look like too much salt, but itís not. Cut small potatoes in half or large ones in quarters and arrange, cut side down, on the sage. Bake uncovered 45 minutes or until done. Serves 4.
