I really like potatoes, but there’s only so many ways that you can enjoy potatoes.

Roasted, chipped, sautéed, spiralized, fondant.. the list is endless! I bet you didn’t expect to find Twisters on that list.

How do I cut the Syn Free Potato Twisters?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.
They’re actually pretty damn easy to make, you can use a gadget to do the hard work for you.

I cut these by hand and don’t worry, we’ll have a video up very soon! The secret is to hold a sharp, thin knife at an angle and cut the opposite way that you’re turning the potato.

Don’t let the knife get away from you your spiral will be too big and they’ll take far too long to cook.

Once you’ve cut them give them a good spray with Frylight and sprinkle the seasoning (below in the recipe!) over the Twisters making sure to cover well.

You then pop them in the oven for a little while, then sprinkle on some cheese & spring onion. Pop them back in the oven, and then they’re ready!

You only need to use a fraction of your HEA, or not even at all if you choose to!

A handy tip is to use a very fine grater for the cheese. That way your HEA will go that little bit further. We’ve just discovered these graters, and they are fab!

It really does seem like you’re getting twice the amount of cheese when grated. You can pick one up on Amazon UK.

Whenever 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 Sunflower or Olive Oil flavours are ideal for this Syn Free Potato Twisters recipe.

    1. Hi Mary
      Have a look in the ‘blurb’ written in the recipe. There’s a link to the potato gadget there. You can also create the same effect by popping the potato onto a skewer and using a sharp knife. Kate explains how to do that in the recipe write up, too. Hope that helps. 🙂
