A note about serious food allergies

There's nothing quite like a piece of perfectly cooked meat with a dollop of melting butter forging minuscule rivers of flavor in the nooks and crannies. We've provided you all the elements here: Fried sage is both delicate and crispy and adds the perfect herbaceous hint when joining sweet honey in the butter. Crunchy broccoli and hazelnuts round out this easy-to-make, delightful-to-eat weekday meal. Tip: How to mince sage: stack the leaves, then ball them up. Hold them with your non-knife hand, using that hand to guide you as you slice. Then rock your knife back and forth until the sage is minced!

    Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with 1/2 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Roast the Broccoli

    Place broccoli, hazelnuts, and garlic on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.
