Smoked Bacon & Mushroom Filo Tartlets

I’m being really #HEALTHYEPLS but fancied doing a bake. So I trotted off to the supermarket and bought the ingredients and developed these Smoked Bacon, Mushroom Filo Tartlets.

I’m all for healthy eating, however for me it still has to taste ace!

In my view there is no point in eating bland boring stuff. If you’re going to eat it then I say you should enjoy it!

So these little beauties are obviously a take on the traditional Cheese & Bacon Quiche, but a lighter version.

So I can’t have shortcrust pastry etc. at the moment.

So I thought about it and did a bit of research and found that filo pastry is really low and goes a long long way.

Smoked Bacon, Mushroom & Filo Tartlets

I made mine in tartlet tins.

I think they would be great in a muffin tin too and they would probably be a little smaller so the Weightwatchers smart points might be a little lower too).

So these four Smoked bacon, Mushroom & Filo tartlets are:

1.5 Syns if you use some of your HA

4 Weightwatchers Smart Points each and let me tell you that’s low.

BUT they are also full of tasty goodness like eggs, cheese, bacon and mushrooms.

Perfect! No compromise on flavour! Yey!

To serve your Filo Tarts 

I think they would be amazing in the summer time for lunch outside, warm with a lovely big salad and maybe some home made coleslaw or potato salad, clearly with a nice glass of something fizzy and cold šŸ™‚

They would also be ace in pack-up’s or for picnics)

Alternatively with baked beans (chips – eeek dare I say it – no issue if SW chips )  as a lovely quick tea.

I’m sure the kids would love them too.

So go on give these Smoked Bacon, Mushroom & Filo Tartlets a go.

And don’t forget perfect at Christmas time too when you have to feed the masses.
