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.

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.

Thanks for your question. We'd certainly recommend serving these hot. Halloumi can have a tough consistency when it's cooled down and the overall dish is much better eaten straightaway.

Hi Please could anyone tell me whether these can be served as a cold item on a buffet? Many thanks
