Halloumi Cheese Fingers


These Halloumi Cheese Fingers make for the ultimate appetizer or snack that everyone asks for. Originating from Cyprus, halloumi is a semi-hard, brined cheese with a high melting point. So it is perfect for grilling or frying. Golden and crispy on the outside and soft and deliciously gooey on the inside, this scrumptious appetizer takes pre-dinner snacking to the next level. I like to serve these cheese fingers with refreshing Greek salad and crusty bread.  

Halloumi is often made with animal-derived rennet, so if you want to use this recipe to make a vegetarian-friendly appetizer, please check the package information when you buy it. The recipe itself is easy, calls for five simple ingredients and is ready in just 10 minutes. Serve the cooked cheese fingers sprinkled with fresh lemon juice, oregano, and black pepper and enjoy!
