Corned Beef Hash

Corned Beef Hash -

When I first made this recipe, Myke had recently been eating a lot of corned beef hash.  He had been wanting some but thought it wouldn’t be Slimming World friendly. One thing I have always tried to do is to adapt all our regular foods. This is not only so that it no longer feels like a standard, restrictive diet, but so that the changes we make to our lifestyle are sustainable long term, even after we are at our target weight.

Back then, I was still a vegetarian, so my experimentation wasn’t sampled by myself. I also made some “Corned Beef Smashties” using the smash pizza base to form a pasty shape.   I then filled it up with corned beef hash and coated it with egg.

This time around, I haven’t used any “tweaks” yet (that’s a whole post for another day!), but I was inspired to make this again after digging around in the back of the cupboards. I didn’t expect to enjoy it all that much, but I honestly, truly did. That much so, I’m making it for our group’s taster session this week!

While I have called for making real mashed potatoes in the recipe, if you’re in a rush, smash does work very well in its place. Also, a splash of Worcestershire sauce in with the beef is absolutely delicious!

As I always say, protect your weight loss by ALWAYS double checking the syn values.
