    There are two recipes here. One says 1-1 1/2 hrs or until potatoes are tender, the other says 2 1/2-3 hrs or until the potatoes are tender. Both recipes use the same oven temperature so as I need to have dinner ready by a certain time could someone suggest which time is more likely to be right. Thanks

      Hello Mr Stokes, I used the recipe from the Slimming World website and at the time of posting, the recipe said to cook for 1 and a half hours. Slimming World must have revised their recipe since I posted.
      I did find that we needed to cook the dish for longer but I assumed I’d cut the potatoes thicker than stated!
      Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I’ll change my recipe to reflect the official recipe 🙂

          I’m afraid I don’t know as we don’t count calories when doing Slimming World.
