Since I first made this cheesy Marmite hash a few months ago – mainly because I needed to do a food shop and was forced to get creative with what I had left in the cupboards – it’s become a firm favourite in my household. 

It’s quick and easy to make, it doesn’t require any fancy ingredients, and it’s just as good for breakfast as it is for lunch or dinner. 

It’s also proof that just because you’re slimming, it doesn’t mean that you have to spend hours slaving over a hot stove, or buying tons of bizarre stuff from the supermarket. 

Let’s get down to making it…

How many Slimming World Syns are in this cheesy Marmite hash? 

Syns are trademarked by Slimming World, and values are only available to current paying members. 

As such, I have decided to omit Syn values from my recipes moving forward. 

Rest assured though, the recipes here will always be made to be as slimming friendly as possible. 

Refer to the official Slimming World app to calculate the Syns, or speak with your consultant for further guidance and advice.
