Halloumi & Bacon Rolls

Halloumi & Bacon Rolls

Oh my goodness. These are amazing. Quick warning, you should probably make a double batch of these because they are not going to be around for long. I mean, cheese and bacon, what’s not to love? Nothing obviously.

Whether you are having friends over to watch football or hosting a fancy dinner party, these little bites are sure to be a hit. I highly recommend letting these get nice and brown and crispy (soggy bacon is just nasty). I served mine with Dijon mustard just to add a little extra something. Totally not necessary, but definitely a tasty addition. I’m a saucy person, so I like having dipping sauces on the side of just about everything. I think a smokey barbecue sauce would also be really tasty.

Halloumi & Bacon Rolls

  • 1 block halloumi
  • 10 rashers of center cut bacon

 

  1. Heat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and place a baking rack on top of the tinfoil.
  2. Cut the halloumi into 20 sticks. stretch each rasher of bacon with the back of a knife, then cut in half.
  3. Roll the bacon around the halloumi in a spiral and arrange on the baking rack. Bake for 15-20 mins or until the pancetta is brown and crispy.

  1. Looks delicious! How do you stretch bacon with the back of a knife? And, do you cut the rasher in half lengthwise or across width?

    • Good questions! Sorry the recipe wasn’t more detailed to begin with.

      To stretch out the bacon, hold one end of it with your fingers, flat on a cutting board/counter and hold the knife in your other hand, with the blade facing up. Gently run the knife away from the hand holding the bacon and it should stretch out in the direction you are pulling.

      Then cut the bacon in half across the width of it (not lengthwise) and you are good to go!
