These Low Syn Scary Spider Sandwiches are another fun, easy idea for Halloween. The kids will love them, and they’re so easy they can even help make them.
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
As you can see, this recipe uses Black Olives. We used Tesco Pitted Black Olives in Brine which are 2 syns for 25g. We used 2 Olives which weighed approximately 2g each, and we’re slicing them up and using 2 thin slices on each sandwich so it’s up to you if you want to syn the olive or not.
Personally we wouldn’t syn it as the amount we’re using is negligible (If we were eating more than a whole olive then we would syn it). As we’ve said, the choice is yours whether you syn it or not.
We’ve used egg as a filling for these Low Syn Scary Spider Sandwiches, but you can use whatever filling you want, just remember to add count the syns if it isn’t syn free. You could even have these on an SP day!
Synning the bread
For this recipe we used a Warburtons Wholemeal 400g loaf, and cut out the shapes using a Frylight lid. Two discs of bread weigh around 6-7g which works out at 0.6 syns per sandwich. That means you can have 2 sandwiches for just over 1.2 syns, but as you know we need to round it up, so that 1.5 syns for 2.
Another thing to mention is the Red Peppers from a jar. We like to use Lidl Freshona Roasted Red Peppers in Sweetened Vinegar, as they are syn free. Whichever brand you decide to use make sure they are in sweet vinegar or brine, not in oil. We don’t want to be adding any syns now do we?
