comment Basic process for making lasagna
A tip I'd add to this is to try and cook the meat sauce for a couple of hours at least. You not only get a tastier sauce with more tender meat, but the liquid will evaporate more leaving you with a nice thick sauce and thus a coherent lasagne. Also, let the lasagne sit for 5 minutes after baking so that it can 'solidify' a little.

comment How to prevent bursting from cheese stuffed beef patties?
Good suggestion, but halloumi isn't much of a 'burger cheese'. It's not very cheesy tasting, it's just salty.

comment How should I incorporate oil into focaccia?
I think the problem may be the quick rise. I ferment my BBA Foccacia for 3 days in the fridge, by which time the oil has soaked into the dough.

comment Fastest way to cook a baked potato?
I agree with a long cooking time for baked spuds. I prefer something like 180°C for 1.5 hours with no foil though. Just because you can cook something quickly doesn't mean you should.
