One thing I love about Slimming World is that no food is off limits, you can have anything you want providing it’s in your daily guidelines or Syns as they’re called with Slimming World.
I don’t have to give up potatoes, cheese or bacon, which I love so I decided to make this huge Slimming World cheesy bacon potato bake. Plus I threw in some extra veg to bulk it out and increase my Speed Food too, I added broccoli & red onion but you could add any extras you like as all veg are free foods.

It’s so amazing & each portion is Syn Free if you use the cheese as your healthy extra a choice. If you don’t then don’t forget you need to Syn it at 4 Syns per portion. The whole bake makes four portions so you can even freeze some for a quick lunch another day.

    I don’t do Slimming World, but this looks like a great recipe anyway. I’m going to pin it for later as I think it’s something my family would really enjoy.

    Oh my goodness this looks SO good! I’ve never done SW but I don’t like the idea of Syns – sounds too much like sin, which is supposed to be a bad thing – and how can food be bad, especially food as amazing and tasty as this recipe you’ve made! 🙂

    Cheese, bacon and potatoes make up the best meals. That’s great that slimming world includes these ingredients from paradise.
