Halloumi Fries

If you guys have been tuning in for while now, you will know by now, that I love my cheese. And not just love, I crave cheese. And chocolate. So when I was craving something this afternoon, I didn’t have much in the fridge. Time to go grocery shopping, that reminds me. I had a block of halloumi cheese and some bread, some sour cream. Pretty sparse haha. So I wanted to come up with a quick and yummy snack with whatever I had in the fridge. Then I thought, if I’m using the halloumi then it’s better to make something new… and Halloumi fries were born!
