Whatever you choose to serve these Cheese and Onion Pasties with, just make sure you count the Syns, Points or Calories accordingly!
What do I need to make these Cheese and Onion Pasties?
You’ll also need a potato masher to make sure all that potato is smooth!
How many Syns are in these Cheese and Onion Pasties?
We used the Weight Watchers White Wraps to make these. We’ve tried many wraps that count as your HEB (Fitzgeralds, BFree), and the Weight Watchers ones are by far the best!
Please note, the Syn value of Weight Watchers Wraps has changed, but they are still an HEB option. However, if you do not use them as an HEB you should now Syn them at 6 Syns each.
They are the only wraps that we’ve found that crimp well, don’t split and actually stay stuck together.
As mentioned above these Cheese and Onion Pasties are Syn free ONLY if you use the wrap as your HEB, and the cheese as half of one of your HEA.
We used Reduced Fat Cheddar, and you get 40g for one of your HEA. As this Cheese and Onion Pasties recipe makes 2 pasties, you only use 20g of cheese in each pasty.
If you don’t want to use any of your Healthy Extra allowances, these Cheese and Onion Pasties will be 9 Syns each.
These Cheese and Onion Pasties are only Syn Free if you use a wrap that counts as your HEB and the Cheese as part of your HEA.
You cannot use just any wrap as your HEB, only particular ones count. We’ve got a handy article to help you choose a suitable wrap!
How Weight Watchers friendly are these Cheese and Onion Pasties?
These Cheese and Onion Pasties are just 8 Points each, that’s an amazing points saving on a shop or bakery bought version!
They also make a great meal, so serve them with your choice of accompaniment!
How many Calories are in these Cheese and Onion Pasties?
There are less than 400 calories in each pasty which saves some precious calories on a shop bought version. Best of all, these pasties are jam packed full of flavour!!

How do you make these Cheese & Onion Pasties?
Prick the potatoes with a knife, then microwave them until soft.
Cut the potatoes in half, scoop the potato into a bowl.
Add the diced onion, grated cheese, mustard powdered Worcestershire sauce and mash with a fork. Continue mashing until there are no lumps and everything is combined.
Take a wrap and place half of the potato mix on one half of the wrap (be careful not to get any too close to the edge).
Brush the exposed side of the wrap and all around the edges with beaten egg. Fold the wrap in half and press down around the edge.
Crimp the edges using the back of a fork, then place on a baking tray sprayed with Low Calorie Cooking Spray. Brush the outside of the pasty with beaten egg.
Bake at 200°C for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Can I freeze these Cheese and Onion Pasties?
This recipe can be frozen, but please remember to do the following;
– Freeze it as soon as it is cold enough
– Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.
-Place a piece of parchment paper between each pasty
– Defrost thoroughly before reheating.
