I can feel the backlash coming, this could also be known as Scouse, Lobbies, potato hash amongst others depending on what part of the country you come from. It’s the whole barm / roll / cob debate all over again.
It’s a barm for the record!
In our house it’s hotpot, and without a single tweak to my grandma’s recipe it’s syn free and completely Slimming World friendly.
You won’t need many ingredients which keeps the cost per head down, and depending on how you cook it you could be sat eating a tasty, wholesome meal perfect for the colder months within the hour.

Equipment i used to make Slimming World friendly hotpot
It’s easy, syn free, cheap as F, what more could you want?
Straight out of the old school and still as popular in our house today as it was years ago.
In all honesty I prefer it with steak and kidney but find the world has turned really fussy and I never get to eat it this way anymore. If you are a fan of kidney like me I would highly suggest adding it.
