Ingredients

This recipe has been added to the shopping list.

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F (225°C).
  2. Cut cheese into 8–10 pieces.
  3. Wrap a piece of bacon around each piece of cheese.
  4. Place on a baking sheet and bake in oven until golden brown for 10–15 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Tip!

Don’t want to turn on your oven tonight? You can always fry the cheese in a frying pan over medium high with some oil or butter. Switch it up a little bit, by subbing pancetta in for the bacon. Craving an extra burst of flavor and texture? A delicious dip is just the right thing! Try adding one – or more – of these amazing dips!

    Amazing! So much scrummy salty taste.

    Had these breakfast today as I didn't want eggs (had made frittata for lunch) and think chia seed porridge was causing stomach issues.

    They're a new favourite. I let them cool down for 10mins before eating so were warm.

    Made these for a trip to the beach yesterday they were such a great hit I’ve been asked to make more they are equally good cold as they are hot

    Proper. As someone who's had a gastrectomy and RNY bypass, i can't fit much in, so what goes in has to be salty, and full of the "bad things"

    Sadly the test cook didn't go well, as they were snaffled by my uncle, fiancee, and parents! Lovely! *humphf"

    I mde myself two more and utter heaven. Will try it with serrano/parma ham soon.

    The maths on this just doesn't add up. A slice of bacon is 12% fat, 19% protein; halloumi 21% protein, 25% fat. How then, does combining them result in something which is 78% fat?

    Bacon is 80% fat

    Made these today for lunch, served on mixed greens with some cherry tomatoes. Excellent! I found trying to turn them made them fall apart and wasn’t necessary, they came out fine without turning. This one is a keeper as well!

    The serving sizes that this defaults to in this case 2, is that 4g carbs for 1 serving or is it 4g for one halloumi and bacon wrap?

    This is 4g carbs per serving.

    I made these today, but sadly they didn't work well for me. British bacon usually has massive amounts of water in it which comes out during cooking. I ended up effectively boiling the individual cheese & bacon pieces rather than roasting them.

    I will try this again, but I'll fry them, emptying the water as I go along to see if it improves the outcome.

    Any bacon with about equal lean and fat will be good.

    How long can you store these

    Most foods that need to be refrigerated can safely be stored for 3-5 days.

    In the UK it would be "streaky bacon"
