These little Bacon Halloumi Bites are so simple to make and very quick to disappear! They’re incredibly moreish that’s for sure. With that beautifully squeaky halloumi wrapped up in sexy salty bacon… with little hints of black pepper & chives, you’re not gonna go far wrong are you?!

Here is what you will need to make 24.

  • 1 x 225g Block of Halloumi Cheese
  • 12 Rashers of Smoked Streaky Bacon
  • 1 tbsp Freshly Chopped Chives
  • Black Pepper

Step 1: Slicing the Bacon

Preheat your oven to 200°C/Fan 180°C and line a baking sheet with tin foil.

Cut the halloumi block into 24 pieces and set to one side. Take each slice of streaky bacon and stretch them out using the back of a knife. (This is to thin it out, making less go a longer way and shortening the cooking time.) Cut each slice in half.

Step 2: Adding Flavour

Sprinkle each piece of bacon with some chives & black pepper. Don’t add salt as the bacon is already very salty.

Step 3: Keep Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'

Place a piece of halloumi at the end of a strip and roll it up. Repeat until everything is used up then place them onto the prepared tin.

Bake in the preheated oven for 18 – 20 mins until the bacon is golden and crispy.

Step 4: To Serve

These are best served straight from the oven. Place them onto a serving plate with some cocktail sticks and let your guests dig in.

What’s not to love about them? They’re little bites of heaven! It’ll be the best magic show you’ll ever put on… put the plate down and they’ll magically disappear! I guarantee your guests will be asking you for more, or the recipe, or both! These little beauties are perfect for Christmas or any gatherings for that matter. Such an easy, delicious party food.

    Is there a substitute for gallium if I can't find it around here?

    Thanks. I will look for all of these cheeses. My family is rather addicted to cheese and I think they will love this recipe.

    I had bought some halloumi at Sam's Club and was told that I could grill. Thanks for this recipe. I know what to do with it now besides grilling.

    Can't wait to try this at the wine club party this Sunday! Thanks.

    why not, also, give directions on how to make the halloumi as well. It's really easy. Where I live it wasn't possible - even at a Greek restaurant - to obtain halloumi so I went online and found how. Having my own goats was a plus but 'store purchased' milk works as well and as a bonus you can make ricotta after you've made the halloumi.

    I had no idea it was that easy! Never even occurred to me to make my own, thanks for the tip :)

    Sounds delicious, but how does the halloumi not melt and run all over?
