I have a very healthy bush. What can I use it for other than stuffing for a chicken?

Fry the leaves for an amazing crispy topping to meat. Sage also goes very well with pork.

niffer13, lucky you! I miss my big sage bush so much and can't seem to encourage another to grow to the same proportions. :( One of our favourite recipes is very simple (although a tad expensive/decadent). It goes like this - take a pork fillet and lay it on prosciutto slices (in a row - think swiss roll type of thing here) covered in sage leaves then roll the prosciutto around all and cook. BBQ, oven roast or pan fry - all are delicious but don't overcook, pork fillet is lean and will not be good if you do.

Sage is great in stuffings, chicken, apple, any cheese dishes. Nice with polenta or deepfried and used as a garnish.

fry in a little butter - serve beside beans. You can use a lot doing this.

Lay some fresh leaves over a pizza base then add other toppings.

Apart from using the good recipe suggestions . just keep it well trimmed back, compost the clippings that you don't use & it will keep growing love fresh leaves . very forgiving plant & it does need regular haircuts for the best results (as do most herbs).
