Syn Free Quiche

I love this recipe, so quick and easy to prepare and takes about 45mins to cook! Its amazing for a main meal with some potatoes or salad or i take it to work for my lunch!

4 large eggs
1 large tub cottage cheese ( I use the lighter living one from tesco)
1 red pepper (chopped)
1 red onion (chopped)
1 clove garlic
50g grated mature light cheddar
4 - 5 rashes of bacon with fat cut off (cooked and chopped)
1 cheese mugshot (cooked) or 70g of cooked fussilli pasta
salt & peppe

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl, and place into a quicke dish or any large oven proof dish!

place into the oven for 35-45 mins
take out and serve!

Hope you try this recipe out!

I made one of these up and have been having it for lunches this week. Really simple and very yummy. I added some Quorn chicken pieces to mine instead of the bacon, as well as mushrooms.

Sounds fantastic and will definitely get tried tomorrow!

Does the 50g cheddar count as a syn or part of the HE?

The cheddar could be either James. 40g of reduced fat is a HEa, or 30g of standard. It sounds like a large quiche so you could just use 40g and then depending on how much you ate, you'd know how much of your HE you had used. Does that make sense?

Unless you are going to eat the entire recipe in one day, I wouldn't class this recipe as syn free.
As Ali said, you can have 40g of reduced fat cheddar as your hex a choice, but as you aren't allowed to split your healthy extra a choice, you would have to syn the cheese. (4 syns per 25g = 8 syns for this recipe)
If you used the stated 50g of reduced fat cheddar in the entire recipe, and then split the quiche into 4 pieces, I'd count 2 syns per portion.

You aren't meant to split your healthy extra choices as they are specifically mesured for calcium/fibre content. The only 'splitting' you are allowed to do are with the b choices, and these are stated in the healthy extras list (the 'Grab n Go' section)
Going over your fibre/calcium choices without counting it can have a negative effect on the scales. Not always, but it does happen.

And also, the cheese flavour Mug Shot isn't free. It's 1 syn per packet.

I know this is annoying, but if some people are using this recipe and counting it as free, they're actually having extra syns they won't have counted for and could end up with a gain that they don't expect and shouldn't have.

If you want to make this recipe free, change the Mug Shot for the Cheese & Broccoli Pasta n Sauce as that is free (made just with water), and omit the 50g of cheddar.
