Looks good and tastes good. Use Oregano instead of Sage for a Greek version. Goes well with almost any meal. Not too good with Egg Foo Yong but then it depends on your tast!

I have sage growing in the yard and I love it. Never thought of putting it in a potato though!! But it sure worked. With the extra garlic and lots of sage this was a treat. I imagine dried sage would work too. Thanks again Bergy
