What do I need to make these Cheese and Onion Pasties?

These Cheese and Onion Pasties are really easy to make. Other than the ingredients, you’ll need a couple of kitchen basics like a good baking tray like this one from Amazon!

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.

Weight Watchers Wrap - Cheese and Onion Pasties | Slimming World & Weight Watchers Friendly

 

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!

  1. Being from Wigan too…. I think that these are the best pasties you can make syn free 😂😂…. syn free pie? or am I in dreamland?

  2. I am having difficulty printing the recipes from my iPad.
    When I press the print button all I get is a white screen.
    My iPad is set up for printing and I don’t have problems normally. Can you advise please.

    Mant thanks for all the gorgeous recipes

    1. Hi Lisa
      We’ve had some issues with the print option. Kay is currently dealing with them,  but it’s not an easy fix. Hopefully the print option will be restored soon. 

  3. If 40g of cheddar is your HEA then why can you only add 20g to each wrap bearing in mind if using your HEB then you can only eat 1 wrap as a portion?

  4. I would be great to find a homemade recipe for low fat wrap, too. Lots of us struggle to get the ww wraps 😉. If anyone knows of one please post. These look absolutely gorgeous, making my mouth water!

    Thank you fo all your lovely recipes 😀

  5. I made 3 pasties with 30g of full fat cheddar as I didn’t have any reduced fat variety, then I put 3 extra light cheese triangles in with the mixture. They were delicious without that heavy greasiness you feel after eating a standard pasty. I will add some black pepper next time to add a little bit of extra flavour. Delighted with this recipe.

  6. Thanks will make again, really enjoyed and kept reasonably for the next day. for lunch at work. Agree with the above slightly and will add some milk to wet the filling a little next time.

  7. Hi I am making these tonight. Am I correct in saying I can add all my HEX A of cheese to the one HEX B weight watchers wrap. This will be no syns ?

    1. Hi Gemma
      As long as you haven’t had your healthy extras already today, you could count the wrap as your HEB choice and add your measured HEA of cheese. This would make it Syn Free. 🙂

    1. Hi Kelly
      They’ll need to be stored in the fridge once completely cool, wrapped in a suitable bag or container. I wrap mine in foil to reheat in the oven, then uncover to crisp up the wrap for the last 5 mins or so.
      I’ve also eaten then cold on picnics! 🙂

  8. Do i need to use mustard powder or can i use prepared mustard instead – if so how much would you think equals 1 pinch of mustard powder.

    1. You could use prepared mustard instead of powdered version. The amount would depend how hot the mustard is, but as a general estimate I would try 1/2 tsp. Just check the calories/Syns/Points if that’s important to you as it will vary from the powder 🙂
