$5 for 5kg


I find it hard to pass up 5kg of potatoes for $5.

10kg for $10 is a common occurrence but who can eat 10kg of potatoes before they go funky? I don’t have an army to feed, so 5kg is more reasonable.

Loose pototoes go for $2-3 per kilo. So even if you give away half of your 5kg bag, you are still better off.

Now, what to do with all these pototoes? We’ve got lemons, sage and rosemary in the garden at the moment, so lemon, sage and rosemary wedges was calling out to be made.

Lemon, Sage and Rosemary Wedges

A spring time lunch for two.

4 medium potatoes
1 tablespoon flour
Zest of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon fresh chopped sage and rosemary
2 tablespoons oil
Sour Cream


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. Cut potatoes into half and then into wedges.
  3. Place in a plastic bag and add flour, lemon zest, oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Shake well.
  5. Arrange potatoes onto a lightly oiled oven proof dish. Stand every piece up so that the skin is the only thing touching the dish.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes.
  7. Remove from heat and let crisp up for about 5 minutes.
  8. Quickly stir through sage and rosemary and serve with grated cheese and a healthy dollop of sour cream.

  1. 5 kg for $5 sounds pretty good deal to me. I love this potatoes wedge recipes and I make it home similar version with sweet paprika, garlic powder and parsley flakes. Love it.

    • Those seasonings sound delicious Pam. Sadly I don’t have sweet paprika, garlic powder or parsley flakes in my arsenal. Must add soon!
