    Hi everyone!

    Not sure if any of you have been told how to make some SW crisps SYN FREE but I thought I'd inform you all of the process.... As they are amazing!!

    You have to slice the potatoes using the large slicer on a 4 sided grater.

    Spray a microwaveable plate with fry light.

    Lay the potatoe slices out on the plate and spray again with fry light.

    Add flavour (salt, paprika, herbs)

    Cook in microwave for about 5mins.

    It's as easy as that!! Obviously you have to eat these in moderation... You wouldn't eat six potatoes in one go so don't go mad slicing! But they are good if you just do one potatoe as a snack!

    My OH lovessssss them!


    If you come up with any SYN FREE flavor combinations then let us know!

    I'm not taking any credit for this as it was a girl at group who informed us but I thought I must share!

    Enjoy xxxx

    Yup, seen this before...HOWEVER...they are only free if your having them as part of a main meal. If you have them as a snack they will need to be synned as, according to SW, they would be classed as 'food abuse'.

    Tasty never the less! x

    I think its only classed as food abuse when your making loads of potatoes worth!

    I would just do one small potatoe every now and then as a little snack!

    Its a dangerous affair....as i LOVE crisps..... lol

    Can someone explain more about food abuse! I'd not heard of that before. I was told that first choice for snacks was fruit or veg then other stuff could be used (no syns) could be used. I'd appreciate the company line on this! Thanks!

    My interpretation of food abuse is over eating on Free food. So for example, if you make these crisps out of 6 potatoes and then sit and eat them all in one go on one day that's abusing free food, because you would never eat 6 potatoes in one go usually.

    That's how I see it, if I'm wrong someone correct me please? Lol xx
