Recipe: Potato Wedges

Snack, light lunch or side dish!

So easy! I have one of those groovy gadgets that helps make this a very quick process.

1 kg of potatoes, from garden or purchased insanely cheaply;0)
Chop with gadget, pop in saucepan of boiling water to par boil. I have to add sweet potato as well as littlest has an allergy to the nightshade family.
Drain potatoes and pat dry with clean tea towel. First picture is just after drying the par boiled spuds, with groovy gadget ($14 from House).

Lightly coat with oil and add to coating mix.
Toss into roasting pan or tray and cook 30mins on high. Yummiest if I use the wood stove.
We eat with sour cream!

The coating is the second picture, ready in a large container to shake. I use 1/2 cup plain flour, 1 TBS of the following: garlic powder, cumin, coriander, mixed herbs and sea salt.

MMmmm, looks delicious! Is that groovy gadget specifically for chopping potatoes? That is so cool, I've never seen one before! Will check it out next time at House. Thanks.

It sure does! You can use it for tomatoes too. I chopped 2 kg of spuds in what felt like seconds! That's just what us busy mums need!

Excellent, thanks! Haven't got to go to House yet but I will soon!

I had to smile at your "purchased insanely cheaply" remark.
I just bought a 4kg bag of spuds from Safeway for $7. I nearly died...
