27 Best Halloumi Fries, Salads & Burger Recipes

Halloumi fries are simply one of the best vegetarian options you can prepare. This famously squeaky cheese that doesn’t melt when cooked has very broad appeal to meat-eaters and vegetarians alike. As well as halloumi fries you can use it in extravagant salads and all kinds of meals.

Traditionally made in Cyprus with goat and sheep’s milk (rather than cow’s milk), halloumi’s proteins keep their structure even at higher temperatures. So it doesn’t melt. Real halloumi’s squeakiness (cow’s milk halloumi is squeak-free) is also thanks to the way these chains of proteins behave. There’s more on the science of squeaky cheeses at Culture cheese magazine.

Halloumi is super versatile, satisfying and healthy. You should definitely keep some on standby in your fridge. These excellent halloumi recipes will help you get the most out of this marvellous cheese.
