Happy Wednesday all! Today’s recipe – Oven Baked Halloumi Chips with Herbs – simple but delicious recipe that will make you love halloumi cheese even more! 🙂
I can’t believe I haven’t tried this before. Honestly, I do get a lot of halloumi cheese in my shopping but I usually grill it and toss it in salads. These halloumi chips are a different story. Of course, they taste like halloumi but at the same time they are different. They’ve got crispy coating which consists of stale rye bread, seasoning and herbs. Yes, stale bread. For some reason, my family is not really keen on bread so almost every time I get a loaf, more than half of it is left. This is how I started making breadcrumbs – simply blitz the bread in a food processor voila, perfect breadcrumbs. I usually sore them in a container in the fridge, really handy. So my point was… I added some dry garlic, parsley and thyme and seasoned with salt and pepper. Be easy on the salt though, the halloumi is already quite salty.
And the best part is there is no frying which makes these chips healthier and easier to make. I guess they would taste a bit too greasy when fried anyway, so oven baked is much better.
I couldn’t escape of not making any mayo based dip again. Really, what’s with me and these dips. I’m telling you, I’ve been making lots of these and eating them too. I had the halloumi chips with spicy mayo and the combination was so yummy.
So yummy that I didn’t realize how a generous portion of the chips and dip was gone in a few minutes. Well, I was actually watching TV. It’s always a bad idea to have food while watching TV. You’ll be surprise how quickly the food is gone. 🙂
