Pigs in Blankets | Slimming World & Weight Watchers Friendly

Pig in Blankets from the supermarket can be as much as 5 syns each. Why have them when you can have these Pigs in Blankets which are just as tasty, and come in at just half a Syn each!

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 👍

They are also so ridiculously easy to make too, with just two ingredients you really cannot go wrong! They’re almost a bit too easy to warrant a recipe, but a few members of our Facebook Group demanded it, and we’re more than happy to oblige, so here we are!

These Pigs in Blankets are ridiculously low in syns and very, very tasty. The Heck Chicken Italia sausages are the perfect match with the bacon. Subtle garlic and herby notes, certainly keep them interesting. You could of course use any sausages, but the lower in syns the better.

What Sausages are the best for these Pigs in Blankets?

Use any sausage you prefer, just make sure you check the Syns, points and calories, because they can vary depending on brand.

I can see myself making a batch of these and putting them in the fridge to munch on in the day! You can, of course, make them a couple of days before, and just leave them in the fridge.

You could put them in a small foil takeaway tray and cook them in it too – save on washing up! Seriously, the fewer dishes to wash on Christmas Day the better!

We buy ours in bulk from Amazon, but you can also get them from any of the major supermarkets. Well worth having in the cupboard in my opinion.

  1. I would assume based on the syn values I have to hand that the Musclefood Chilli and Garlic sausage would make this a syn free dish?
