Those look really good, BFY, and I'm sorry they weren't completely cooked.  Apart from the oven suggestion, you could try making the slices a bit thinner, then they might cook better?

They were fairly thin Olivia, not sure I could make them thinner without losing a finger.   

I put slices of garlic in the slots also to open them up somewhat.

I shall, of course, try again.

Re: Whats For Supper?

I know that feeling,BFY (having sliced my finger open making hasselback potatoes before ...) - it's probably going to be a question of working out the timings in your own oven if it is temperamental.  I know my old aga used to have huge differences in temperature, so everything was a guessing game.  Now everything overcooks whilst I try to work an inherited, not-very-brilliant fan oven  hmm

Re: Whats For Supper?

BFY - I have zapped my Hasselback potatoes in the microwave for a few mins before baking when I am short on time (or just really hungry). I'd recommend it when you have your next attempt at them  smile

Dinner last night was meatballs in pasta sauce served on rice & finely diced steamed veggies. It was one of my random creations one night and is a definite favourite in our house.

This evening I'm having a change as an accompaniment to my ubiquitous chicken curry. First time I've made potato and onion raita.

Tonight we've got a couple of small pork belly roasts, which I'll cook slowly in the oven over some carrots, potatoes and parsnips, and serve with broccoli.

Re: Whats For Supper?

Spaghetti and meatballs, a great recipe from Gourmet Traveller Australia, although they serve the meatballs with soft polenta.  We have made it many times and its always delicious.

Re: Whats For Supper?

Breaded halibut fillets With wedge cut potatoes & garden salad.

Also, just a note-I also tried the hassleback potatoes BFY. I put them in the microwave for 10 minutes (two potatoes). then in the oven at 400 degrees F.        I oiled them & seasoned with garlic powder & pepper. But I found them quite bland. I was disappointed as I was looking forward to them. I will have to try again, maybe add some salt? Although I don't normally use salt when I cook. Just letting you know your not alone... neutral
P.S. Your potatoes looked perfect B.F.Y.!
