Sautéed Carrots with Sage

This was the second side dish that I brought to Easter dinner with my in-laws. It was super simple, and went beautifully with the turkey and stuffing.

These carrots are cooked in a blend of butter and oil and then cooked until just tender. A bit of fresh sage at the end livens this dish up and adds a splash of soft green color.
