This delicious crustless egg and bacon pie is not only filling, but it’s also Syn Free on a Slimming World Extra Easy plan.
I have some great memories from my non Slimming World days.
I’d watch celebrity chefs on YouTube for hours on end, looking for some new and exciting meals to please my fiance. And I’d get to practice my cooking skills.
But when I started on more of a healthier meal focus, it really helped me understand some processes so I could play around with some of the ingredients.
I think I may have followed a Hairy Bikers recipes years ago.
It was so delicious, but as we all know pastry has a fair few syns, I just wanted the flavours and save my treats for later in the day.
So this is definitely worth a go; it really took me back and it’s really flipping easy!
WHAT MAKES IT SYN FREE?
There are a few ways to ensure this dish is Syn Free in terms of Slimming World. That is, you’re using the cheese as part of your Healthy Extra A of course.
So here’s a list of what I do:
- Eat between 4 people
- Always use low calorie cooking oil spray, such as Frylight.
- Use fat free natural yogurt.
- Use mustard powder as opposed to sauce.
- Opt for reduced cheese where possible. Many full fat cheeses can be used as a Healthy Extra A, but you can’t eat as much. For example, this recipe uses half of one’s HE A.
- Remove all visible fat from your bacon.
CAN I FREEZE CRUSTLESS BACON AND EGG PIE?
Absolutely! With a dish like this, I tend to cut it in portions and store in freezeable lidded containers and separated where possible. That way I can grab one at a time and defrost when needed within a month after cooking.
When it comes to defrosting, sometimes I cheat by heating through my meals in the microwave, similar to a ready meals. However, if I’m not in a rush, I leave them to defrost thoroughly in the fridge.
For storing in a fridge, I leave up to 5 days in a lidded tupperware box.
Here’s just a few things that goes great with my egg and bacon pie:
- Baked potato
- Bubble and squeak
- Hasselback potatoes
- New potatoes
- Cubed potatoes, baked with frylight
- Slimming World Syn Free chips
- Slimming World Syn Free butternut squash chips
