These Dirty Fries are sublime, and the perfect addition to any Slimming World, Weight Watchers or Low Calorie meal which the whole family will love!

Last year we came up with a Slimming World version of Dirty Rice, and it’s fair to say that it was one of our most popular recipes EVER in 2017. These Dirty Fries will be another favourite as they’re sooooooooo good!! Dirty Fries | Slimming World & Weight Watchers Friendly

Dirty Fries are ridiculously easy to make, and especially so in the Tefal Actifry!

Bacon, potatoes and Cajun spice may sound like a bit of an odd mix, but it’s truly amazing. It has to be one of my favourite combinations ever.

They’re quick, easy, tasty and best of all there’s hardly any mess. No need to turn them either, as it’s all done for you by the paddle.

You can just leave the Actifry to it pretty much!

    1. Hi Katie
      Obviously different makes of airfryer will have their own guidelines, but it should be possible to adapt the recipe to suit your appliance. 🙂

  1. Looking forward to trying these in my actifry always looking for different ways to use it from making chips so keep the recipes comming

  2. Oh my goodness..after nearly 2 years of sw I can’t believe that I can eat this for just my hea..flippin gorgeous xx Would love to add a picture but am OAP and don’t know how lol x

  3. I am doing this at lunchtime. I have already made a Bolognese mixture with lots of speed foods so should be great.
    Is it possible to say this to an email address please. I don’t have my printer going at the moment and wanted to save it.😃

  4. Absolutely fabulous so so tasty, I dolloped fat free yoghurt on mine and jalapenos for a proper treat

    1. Hi Mary
      Depending on which cheese you’re using, 1 x HEA of low fat cheddar is 40g or 6 Syns. You should always double check Syn values on the Slimming World website for the most accurate advice.

    1. Hi Shaz,
      If you scroll to the recipe card at the bottom, you’ll see the steps written down. (There’s an actifry method and an oven method.) The bacon medallions are diced, so they’ll cook in just a few minutes, as detailed in the steps. Hope you enjoy it – this is a big favourite in our house! 🙂
