Cooks Tip

  • I used Halloumi cheese this time and it works extremely well
  • I have made them with Roquefort and Cheddar
  • The mixture of a strong and milder cheese just blends well together


  • Serve with toasted sesame buns and a crisp green salad with beetroot


  • Large mixing bowl
  • Blender or food processor
