This Syn Free Bacon, Onion and Potato Bake reminds me of my childhood, where it was affectionately known as “Tin Of Praters”.

Syn Free Bacon, Onion and Potato Bake

Syn Free Bacon, Onion and Potato Bake is ridiculously easy to make. Seriously! We like an easy dinner, especially if we’ve had a full day of prepping and cooking.

The last thing you want to do after cooking all day, is to cook more for yourself.

This Syn Free Bacon, Onion and Potato Bake differs ever so slightly to the one I remember as a kid. There was no cheese (boo-hiss) and I used to have it with a *lot* of ketchup.

You can still have this with ketchup if you prefer, but the combination of bacon and cheese is just too hard to resist!

Now, there isn’t much speed food in this Syn Free Bacon, Onion and Potato Bake so it’s really important that you serve it with some!

We went for our Syn free Buttery Carrot & Swede Mash, steamed savoy cabbage, and pickled red cabbage.

They’re all side dishes that take no time at all to prepare & are the sort of veg that we have knocking round the fridge.

We usually make these for Sunday roast, and eat the left overs in the week. Here they come in handy!

How To Assemble This Syn Free Bacon, Onion and Potato Bake

First up you need to peel and slice the potatoes. Slice them about 5mm/ 1/3 of an inch thick and put them into a bowl of cold water until you’re ready to use them.

Next, spread a layer of sliced onion on the bottom of an oven proof dish.

We used a white enamel oven proof dish (which surprisingly has kept nice and clean, despite it being white!). You can grab one fromAmazon here.

Next, arrange a layer of potato slices and bacon on top of the onions, alternating a couple of slices and potato with a piece of bacon, then add another layer of onions.

Repeat until you have used up all the bacon and potatoes. You should have a couple of layers at least.

You then pour the made up stock over the top and season with a little salt and pepper.

Spray the top with a little butter Frylight, then cover with foil and seal! How easy is that?! The rest of the instructions are below – keep scrolling!

Talking of Frylight! When ever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free! The butter flavour is ideal for this Syn Free Bacon, Onion and Potato Bake recipe.

    1. Hi Sue
      That sounds good! A good thing about this dish is you can have it as it is as a main meal, or you can have it as a side dish

  1. Made this today for my parents and family. Everyone said how nice it was. Put with pork steaks peppers mushrooms and tomatoes. Thank you for the inspiration x

    1. Hi Mandy
      It’s in the ingredients list. 1 Veg stock Cube or chicken stock cube made up with 200ml of boiling water

  2. Hi. This looks like a great meal to have on freezer. I think I would cook it, freeze? Then defrost and reheat adding cheese for last 10 mins. Or could I add cheese before freezing? Thank you very much.

    1. Hi Lou
      We’ve not tried freezing it, but I don’t see any reason why you would have any problems. I would probably add the cheese during reheating

  3. Is it only 40g of cheese for the whole tray or 40g per portion . Only asking as its not a lot of cheese for a tray for 4 portions , thanks Jane

    1. Hi Jane
      We use a very fine grater for cheese, so 40g goes a lot further. You could, of course, increase the amount of cheese you use, but sometimes we like to use our HEA up on milk for drinks etc so we kept it to 40g for the whole lot

  4. Just made this had spinach and mushrooms needed using up, so put bed of spinach in bottom and mixed in the mushrooms, can’t wait for it to bake and eat it!!
