- Mix cheese and rutabaga with the other ingredients in a bowl. Let sit for a few minutes.
- Form 12 patties with your hands and place in frying pan with a generous amount of butter. (Or use a large spoon and scoop mixture directly into pan.)

- Serve with a green salad and a dollop of mayonnaise, perhaps flavored with herbs or paprika powder. And don't forget the bacon...
Halloumi cheese is also known as grilling cheese, frying cheese or Queso Para Frier. Due to its high melting point, it holds its own while delivering a creamy texture—pure heaven in our book! Feel free to use spices of your choice to further enhance the fritters. Adding half a teaspoon of chili flakes or a tablespoon dried herbs will work magic

This side dish is on the higher carb side for our keto recipes, but with some foods, it's important to pay attention to quantity to minimize the carb count. Additionally the carb count we track is net carbs, not total, so the fiber is deducted.
I'm not completely sure, but I believe freezing may affect the texture of these in a negative way.
You could also use turnips, kohlrabi, daikon, or even broccoli stems.
Great to hear that you enjoyed it!
