Daily Slimming World Meal: Semi-Synful Potato Leek Bake

I love potatoes in any incarnation, but a potato bake may be my favorite way to eat them. I think a nice, warm bake is a great comfort food and especially wonderful for a cold winter evening inside. A lot of recipes for potato bakes go overboard with the cheese though, so I’m very excited about this Slimming World program friendly recipe.

This delicious Slimming World potato bake is made with leeks and bacon for lots of flavor, but the recipe only calls for a small amount of low fat crème fraiche. The bake is still very creamy, but not overloaded with a ton of high fat dairy products!

"Semi-Synful Potato Leek Bake"Ingredients:

6 rashers of bacon
1 KG of potatoes
2 leeks
600 mils of chicken stock
100 mils of low fat creme fraiche
1 clove of garlic
Fry light Spray
Baking dish
Large cooking pot

Directions:

1. Wash and peel potatoes and chop into thin slices.
2. Wash leeks (make sure to wash them well, as leeks are usually fairly gritty when you get them from the store) and then dice them.
3. Trim and chop the bacon.
4. Mince the garlic.
5. Add chicken stock, potatoes, garlic, and leeks to a large cooking pot. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then boil for about 5 minutes.
6. Drain the pot, setting aside 200 mls of stock for later.
6. Spray your baking dish liberally with Fry Light.
7. Layer half of the potato mixture into the baking dish.
8. Spread half of the bacon over the potatoes.
9. Layer the rest of the potatoes into the dish.
10. Spread the other half of the bacon on top and add the crème fraiche.
11. Bake at 175 until crispy (check after about 15-20 minutes.)

Serve this recipe with chicken or some vegetables as a side. This Slimming World dish would also be perfect to bring to a potluck. Remember, this meal will count for a few syns, but I think it’s well worth it!
