    Fry the Sage

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Stem sage. Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium oven-safe pan over medium heat.

    Cut broccoli into large bite-sized florets, if necessary. Mince garlic. Mince remaining sage. Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ½ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Place broccoli, hazelnuts, and garlic on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until browned and fork-tender, 14-16 minutes. While broccoli roasts, sear pork chops.
