Homemade Gnocchi with Browned Butter and Sage

potato gnocchi with sage butter and parmesan

Potato gnocchi is both delicious and fun to make. Here is a luxury but simple recipe where the gnocchi is served with lovely browned butter, flavorsome sage, and grated parmesan.

4 - 6 servings

> 60 min


  • 900 g potatoes
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 dl flour + extra for rolling
  • 2 tbsp butter for frying
  • 2 tbsp oil for frying
  • black pepper

Browned butter with sage

  • 1 pot sage
  • 50 g butter

For serving

  • About 1 dl parmesan


  1. Boil and peel the potatoes in salted water. Mash the potatoes with a ricer into a bowl.
  2. Mix the mashed potatoes with the eggs and salt. Mix the flour with the mash into a dough.
  3. Cut off a piece at a time and roll it into a 2 - 3 cm roll.
  4. From each roll, cut 3 cm pieces.
  5. Make a dent/little hole in each piece, about halfway in, with your finger, or roll each piece against a fork to get a pattern where the sauce can stick onto.
  6. Boil up salted water in a large pot. Boil the gnocchi for a few minutes. You know they are ready when they start to float. Lift out the gnocchi with a slotted spoon or a spider strainer.
  7. Let the gnocchi rest on a piece of paper towel.
  8. Pick the leaves from the sage. Melt the butter in a pan and brown it until it starts to smells nutty. Take the pan off the stove and add in the sage and stir.
  9. Fry the gnocchi in oil and butter until golden. Taste with salt and pepper.
  10. Serve the gnocchi on a plate and top it with the sage butter and grated parmesan.
