Some great ideas but some of the syn values def need adjusting- two that stuck out was the mushroom baskets- bread and brandy def won't be free.
Also the sausage casserole, there isn't any official syn free sausages anymore so this will need some adding to it.
Some really good ideas though, hope this can be moved to recipe sub forum :) x
