    Love halloumi cheese--being in Greece, we get the good stuff too. Try halloumi souvlaki some time. Great stuff.

    oh my - quite the salt bomb with halloumi, bacon AND added salt :D
    I usually let my halloumi sit in water for some 15-20 minutes to get the excess salt out.

    Otherwise this sounds great, I wonder why I never thought of combining this stuff myself! Will try it out!

    Sounds lovely unsure what Scallions were but apparently spring onions. Plan to try soon, thanks.

    This was delicious but I think the metric conversions are a little off.. you don't measure parsley or olives in ml (though ml converts to the same weight as grams) as they aren't liquid and the ratio of olives to egg was very high! I didn't add any where near as much parsley as there would have been way more parsley than egg!

    didn't enjoy this at all, far too salty for my tastes. And (depending on what brand of haloumi you use perhaps) the cheese clumped together and melted. Won't be making it again.

    We liked this, the measurement of the parsley is odd in metric. We just used a small handful chopped finely.
