225 g halloumi
7 strips bacon
Preheat oven to 425 F (220 C).
Cut the halloumi block into half lengthwise. Then cut into 1 inch (2,5 cm) strips, so you have 14 halloumi fries. Cut the bacon strips in half horizontally. Carefully wrap a piece of bacon around each halloumi fry.
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 18-20 minute until the edges of the halloumi are browned. Grill on high for a further 2 minutes to make the bacon crispy.
Serve as soon as cool enough to handle with Green Goddess Dip (see below).
