    Open the oven and give them a prick or they could pop.

    Never argue with an idiot. He'll bring you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

    Yeah, bulging doesn't sound good. Hope you've stabbed them by now, or you might have a lot of cleaning up to do. Yuk.

    OK phew they didn't blow. I couldn't bring myself to open the oven and prick them. I turned off the oven and waited for them to deflate. This is totally due to my irrational fear of latex balloons.

    On the plus side, they came out fabulous! I think I must have pressure-cooked them in their skins!
