Syn Free Bacon, Spring Onion and Kale Hash | Slimming World

One of our favourite meals pre Slimming World was Corned Beef Hash. But with corned beef being somewhere in the region of 7 to 8 syns for a small 200g tin, we’ve had to add it to our favourite but not really worth the syns list! We decided to make this Syn Free Bacon, Spring Onion and Kale Hash as an alternative.


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 👍

This is similar to a bubble and squeak recipe. But rather than using whatever leftover veg you can get your hands on we’re using Bacon, Spring Onion and Kale, which is a great combination.


There’s not really much to say about this Syn Free Bacon, Spring Onion and Kale Hash recipe, other than it’s really quick and easy to prepare, it’s a great comfort food, it’s incredibly cheap to make and best of all it won’t cost you any syns at all!


Of course if you don’t mind adding a syn or 2 you could always throw in a sachet of Butter Buds (for 0.5 syns or WW 1 point) and a tablespoon of whole grain mustard (for about 1.5 syns or 1 WW point) or horseradish sauce (for 1.5 – 2.5 syns or 1 WW point).

Should you do decide to add these don’t forget to check the Slimming World app, website or your book for exact syn values.

If you haven’t tried Butter Buds yet you really should.


They are fat and cholesterol free butter-flavoured granules that can be used in place of butter. Try it on potatoes, vegetables, pasta or rice. You can pick some up on Amazon

    1. Hi Clare,

      Butter buds are dried, low fat butter which give that buttery taste without the adding as many calories as regular butter 😊

  1. Hi, I’m really keen to try this dish it looks fabulous! (Love your website by the way, recently tried your banana bread and it was amazing). I’m really not a big fan of kale, do you think it would work with cabbage instead? Or is there anything else you would suggest? Thanks!
