Tasty recipes for our halogen oven TSV


Jilly Jones

We can't wait to try out the halogen oven Today's Special Value which roasts, bakes and grills all of our favourite meals, and has a self cleaning function too.

Cooking expert Jilly Jones has come up with two tasty recipes for you to try at home using the fantastic portable oven.

See her recipes for a summer salmon dish and chocolate bread and butter pudding below…

Jilly's salmon dish Jilly's salmon with a dill and parmesan crust

Serves 2


2 boneless salmon fillets
1/4 pack dill
Grated parmesan cheese
2 slices bread
1 oz butter


 - Break the bread into pieces and put into a food processor. Add dill and whiz for a few seconds until you have breadcrumbs. Stir in parmesan cheese and melted butter.
 - Serve on a bed of mashed sweet potatoes with dill sauce and asparagus

 - Press a handful of the crust topping onto the top of each salmon fillet

  – Loosely cover with buttered foil and bake on the top rack of the halogen oven for about 10 minutes

  – Remove foil and continue to bake for a further 10 – 15 minutes or until topping is crispy and the fish is cooked

Dill sauce

1/2 pack of finely chopped dill
200g Greek yoghurt
Juice of half a lemon


 - Empty the greek yoghurt into a bowl, add chopped dill and lemon juice
 - Leave in fridge for 1 hour for flavour to develop

Jilly's chocolate bread & butter pudding Jilly's chocolate bread and butter pudding

Serves 4


1 pack of dark chocolate brioche finger rolls
Spreadable butter
4 large egg yolks
100g caster sugar
200ml double cream
200ml full fat milk
1 vanilla pod
6 squares of good quality dark chocolate chopped into small pieces


  – Brush the inside of a small ovenproof dish with butter

  – Split the brioche rolls lengthwise and butter each half. Cut each half in half again and working from the outside of the dish towards the centre, layer only half of the slices, slightly overlapping each slice and covering the whole of the base of the dish.

 - Dot half of the chocolate pieces on top of the layer and then repeat with a second layer of slices (reserving the remaining chocolate pieces)

 - Put the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl and lightly whisk

 - Pour the cream and milk into a pan, split the vanilla pod lengthwise and scrape out the seeds, then put the seeds into the pan with the milk and cream and gently bring to the simmer for just a few minutes

 - Pour on to the egg yolk mixture, stirring with a wooden spoon

 - Pour mixture back into the pan and place on a gentle heat for just a couple of minutes, stirring continuously until mixture thickens just slightly into a custard (do not boil)

 - Leave mixture in pan for about 10 minutes to cool slightly, then slowly pour the warm custard over the brioche, allowing time for the custard to sink down to the bottom layer

 - Finally, sprinkle on the remainder of the chocolate, cover dish loosely with a piece of buttered foil and bake in the halogen oven for about 20 minutes

 - Remove foil and continue to bake for a further 15 minutes or until custard has just set

 - Allow to cool slightly then serve with lashings of double cream

    I have just bought my first halogen oven and it is trial and error at the moment. I want to make some cakes and wondered if I can use my silcon cupcake moulds, and also is it possible to use metal cake tins
    Many thanks

    just got my oven. Cooked chicken pieces and initial try they didn’t work out and I had to cook them for much longer than expected. Next, cooked a jacket spud. Again very disappointed, took much longer than I hoped. Will try more for a couple of days but have to say the QVC programme is quite different from when you try things at home. This is my first purchase from QVC and probably my only one.

    in the booklet provided it says it replaces 10x items from your kitchen of which one says slow cooker. But nowhere in the booklet does it say you can put your food direct into the glass bowl???? Is this possible?? or do you always have to put the ingredients in a bowl to place in the bowl????

    I have been using a hologen oven for 2-3 years now. It is my main oven now. Onlt when cooking for 7-8 people do I turn my large oven on. I have cooked cupcakes on silicon bakewear. I am considering buying this for a present. Something I wouldnt do unless totally happy with it.
