    I know you can make your own syn free chips, but sometimes they just won't do I find! I had a really long and tiring day at work yesterday and when I got in I wanted chips from the take away. I didn't want anything else! My husband was thinking more clearly and due to his obsession with oven chips had about 4 different brands in the freezer. He checked on the slimming world site and we discovered that 100g of McCain rustic chips are just 1syn. I had a massive plate of chips with a huge dollop of hellmans extra lite for 4 fantastic syns. Mmmmmm!

    I lurve SW chips. Instead of par-boiling them I stick them in a big jug, cover with boiling water and nuke in microwave for 5 mins, drain, spray and cook in oven until crispy. God im starving now!:eat:

    I put my potatoes in the microwave whole, and blitz for 10 mins, I then take them out and cut them into wedges before putting them straight into the oven for about 20 mins.

    Thanks for the advice about McCain rustic chips, thats ace, as sometimes I just need a quick fix without all the faff x

    Just popping in to say have any of you tried an actifry? I have one and you can cook enough chips for the whole family (lovely home-made or frozen) for a max of 3% fat. They are expensive to buy but I am so thrilled with mine. Best chips ever and guilt free!

    I absolutely love those McCain rustic chips too and you get quite a good amount for 1 syn so I tend to have about 3-4 syns worth :D

    Thanks for the tip. i know this time of year you can make really lovely sw chips, I do all the time, but come summer when the pots are not so good for baking, I'll defo be buying the rustic chips, they sound fab.

    They're 1 syn for 100g (on green and extra easy) so a whole bag would be 10 syns.

    Me too! they were never right despite what people claim lol. For that reason I made the decision to but the Actifry. One of my more inspired decisions.

    Don't sully the Actifry with frozen chips lol.

    You know the rules, extra virgin olive oil (HEXB) and Maris Piper potatoes.

    Back to the orignal thread, they look a good low-syn alternative to those without and Actifry or not bothering with the palava of SW chips.

    How many would you do in a portion? - 250g would be my guess for 2.5 syns. Or the whole bag for 10!!!;)
