Just looked this recipe again as I`ve been asked to bring something along. So tasty and always popular, easy and not time consuming to make. I always feel the cheese to make sure it is firm before buying.

Made these up with a standard block of halloumi from the supermarket, a packet of smoked pancetta and chives as suggested. A little bit fiddly to assemble, as the pancetta ripped quite easily, but they still looked and tasted fantastic. Easy to make up ahead of time and then bung in the oven to finish off quickly too. Boyfriend was a big fan and will be making again soon.

Can you serve these cold?

Very easy and very tasty. I used halloumi with chilli to add a little something. They did not last very long!

Sounds fantastic will make for my granddaughter (who is coeliac) at Christmas.
I must have a practice before though.

This is my go-to recipe for any occasion. They're always gone within 5 minutes of coming out the oven!

I'm going to be making these for my friends get together next weekend and am really looking forward to it as they just sound a look divine!

I attempted these for a family gathering at the weekend, and it wasn't nearly as easy as it sounds. When I tried to cut the hallloumi into sticks, it crumbled to pieces, and so did the bacon when I tried to stretch it. I ended up with some very tiny ones, and lost patience before I had used all the ingredients.

They did taste good though, and all got eaten - if I'd perserved with the rest of it, I think they'd have all gone. I doubt if I'll attempt these again though, unless my gluten free sister is visiting.

I would check where you got the cheese from, halloumi should have a firm rubbery texture and is not at all crumbly. That sounds more like feta.

I replaced the chives with diced chorizo & wrapped in smoked streaky bacon....... Omg, the best :-)

These are so yummy, I made them when we had some friends round for dinner and they went down so well my husband went out the following day and bought all the ingredients so that I could make him some more.

I've made these a couple of times over the Christmas period.
The second time I placed the sliced Halloumi inside an open cup mushroom and wrapped the whole thing in a bacon parcel.

A Hit !

A lip-smacking success! They didn't stick around for long and i made double the quantity!

fantastic !!! so easy to make. served them as finger food to parents at my childs party, never saw food dissappear so fast. A must for any gathering with nibbles. More like this please.

Made these last night with parma ham. Only 10 minutes in the oven. Nice, but quite salty.

I have preparred these with other canapes for our housewarming party and everyone loved them! Really tasty and so easy to make... they go really well with some undressed salad leaves like lettuce as they are full of flavour and quite salty.
