    For the Fried Sage:

    • Roll out a paper towel station next to your stove. Add some vegetable oil to a small saucepan.

    • Grate the parmesan cheese.
    • In a food processor, carefully attach the metal processing blade. Add flour, baking powder and salt. Pulse a few times to mix up.
    • Add the parmesan cheese to the food processor. Give it a quick pulse.
    • Cut the cold butter into 1-inch sized cubes. Add it to the food processor and pulse.
    • In a medium bow, mix wet ingredients together.
    • Add to the wet mixture to the food processor and pulse, then add the crushed sage.
    • Make sure the dough is cohesive.
    • Carefully add the dough to a well-floured work surface. Lightly knead a few times.
    • Roll out to about 1-inch thick. 
    • Use a circle cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits. 
    • Transfer the rounds to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
    • Whip up a quick egg wash by adding one egg and some milk to a small bowl. Whisk until combined.
    • Brush the egg wash on the tops of the biscuit.
    • Transfer to the oven to bake at for about 14 - 20 minutes.
    • Serve with nice butter.



    Take extra precautions while handling your food processing blade! 
    You can substitute some rosemary for the sage if preferred or skip altogether.
