1.Preheat oven to 240°C (220°C fan-forced).
2.Boil, steam or microwave potato 5 minutes; drain, pat dry with absorbent paper.
3.Place potato, in single layer, on oven tray; drizzle with half the oil. Roast 30 minutes.
4.Meanwhile, roll each schnitzel, top with sage leaves. Wrap bacon around each schnitzel, secure with toothpicks or small skewers.
5.Heat remaining oil and butter in large frying pan; cook saltimbocca, bacon seam-side down, turning occasionally, until cooked. Remove from pan.
6.Pour wine into pan; bring to the boil, stirring. Boil until liquid is reduced by half. Serve saltimbocca with potato, drizzled with wine sauce.

Creamy mashed potato goes well with saltimbocca, if you prefer serving that to roasted potatoes. For a truly decadent mash, stir in ⅔ cup of mascarpone cheese before serving.
