Made this to go with Christmas dinner - it's quite delicious and fairly simple to prepare. The sage butter makes this stand out, but next time I think I would serve it from a shallower, wider so that the sage butter distributes more evenly throughout the potatoes. Otherwise, only one or two first-comers end up with the delicious butter. Other option: stir the butter into the potatoes, but the presentation might not be as nice!
