Is It a Tweak?

Yes, this Low Syn Scotch Eggs recipe does use Smash as a coating, so it is considered a tweak by Slimming World.

However, as we are only using a very small amount of Smash here, and we would only ever have this occasionally we don’t bother synning the Smash.

Having said that, the choice is yours.

If you want to syn the Smash then it would be considered by Slimming World to be replacing breadcrumbs so it should be synned at 4.5 syns per 25g.

If you don’t want to syn the Smash then don’t. Your weight loss journey is yours and yours alone, so it’s not our place to criticise or question your decisions.

As always, if using Smash this way affects your weight loss then, you should stop using it this way.

Slimming World have recently given a Syn value to Smash and Instant Mash. You can find out the details here. This recipe uses a very small amount of Smash as a coating so we’ve chosen not to Syn it. Again, the decision is yours whether you do or don’t.

Low Syn Scotch Eggs Recipe

With just 4 ingredients, the recipe for these Low Syn Scotch Eggs is so easy.

When we first created this recipe we used Porky Lights, but after the recent issues with the Syn values we now use sausages from Protein Food Shop. However, you can use whichever sausage you prefer. M&S Skinny Range sausage are half a Syn each, as are Protein Food Shop Chipiolatas.

We’ve been on the hunt for a new meat supplier for a while now. As you know, we used to use Musclefood, but not anymore! We’ve found a company that not only has a better moral compass but also has some of the best quality meat we've seen in a long time.

Protein Food Shop is a family run business, and really care about where their meat comes from. They also produce Slimming sausages that in my opinion, are the best “diet” sausages we’ve ever had.

You can grab their sausages in a few of our hamper deals, you really should give them a try.


We even have a special Sausage selection box! Their full-size sausages come in at 1 Syn each, and Chipolatas at 0.5 Syns each.

You can also make these meat-free by using some Linda McCartney Rosemary & Red Onion sausages. They’re syn free & recipe is coming soon!

  1. I have tried and tried with these Scotch eggs but every time I make them they split badly. They still taste just as good but I’m obviously going wrong somewhere? Can anyone help?

    1. Hi Victoria
      This recipe is not suitable for freezing, but the scotch eggs will keep in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 48hrs. 🙂

    1. Hi Caroline
      Have a look at the seasonings we add to our pork mince for the sausage rolls, the same flavours can be added to your pork mince for scotch eggs, too!

  2. Hi I stupidly thought these would be made with beef 5% fat mince before I looked st the recipe! I suppose you could use mince though and as above add some herbs to flavour?

    1. Hi Rosie
      I’m sure you could try with beef mince! We’ve had people in the group make them with turkey mince too! 🙂
