How To Make: Keto Halloumi Fries Recipe

Let’s start by answering ‘Is Halloumi Keto?’… YES! Yes it most certainly is!

The whole point of the Keto lifestyle is to retrain your thoughts towards food, treats included! There are many ways you can incorporate Keto treats/snacks into the lifestyle, especially if you are experiencing a lull and a glass of water will not fix it. This is where Keto Halloumi Fries make their appearance! Wondering how to make Keto Halloumi Fries? Prepare to be shocked at the ease of my Keto Halloumi Fries Recipe below!

How to make Keto Halloumi Fries

I am a fan of pork scratchings and tend to stock up on pork rind from the butchers. Rub lots of Pink Himalayan Salt onto the rind and into the scores on top. Crank up your over to just over 200 degrees and pop your baking tray with salted pork rind in for roughly 40 minutes, or until crispy. Dips such as sour cream and Keto guacamole make the perfect accompaniment for this tasty treat. Just be careful with your teeth!

However, I have only just come to realise the awesomeness of Halloumi! Never really having been on my radar before, it has now become a staple in my fridge, enabling me to make Halloumi Fries Keto style for a seriously tasty and lifestyle friendly snack.

If you have yet to make Halloumi Fries whilst following the Keto lifestyle, let’s have a look how easy it is to make them!

Keto Halloumi Fries Recipe

You only really need to ingredients to make basic Halloumi Fries – the Halloumi itself and a pan filled with oil. I use coconut oil as it always seems to be on hand. You can use olive oil or any other Keto friendly oil. Some people choose to deep-fry the Halloumi, however I have found that a decent helping of coconut oil in a frying pan is just as effective.

What do you need to make Keto Halloumi Fries:

A block of Hallloumi
Coconut Oil

Best way to chop up Halloumi

How To Make Keto Halloumi Fries:

Firstly, cut the desired amount of Halloumi to wish to cook, for me it always seems to be enough for 4 fries. Then cut again, but this time into the shape of chips. The cheese is easy to cut and to work with.

Halloumi Nutritional Information

I purchase my blocks of Halloumi from Aldi, though it is readily available! As you can see, there are nominal carbs, with less than 0.5g of carbs per 30g of cheese and also containing a decent amount of fat and protein, Halloumi is a cheese loving, Keto follower’s dream food!

Cooking Halloumi in coconut oil

Ensure the oil in the pan is hot before placing your Halloumi sticks in. I use just enough oil to make it easy to cook the fries on a side at a time. The cooking time is around 5 minutes, making it a very quick snack to make. Keep flipping the fries over for a golden finish on each side.

Yummy cheesy fries

You will know by sight when they are ready! Move from a pan onto a paper towel to soak the excess oil and then simply serve and enjoy – with or without a Keto friendly dip! The Halloumi Fries will be somewhat harder in texture, giving the appearance of fries, but with more yumminess!

Simple and easy to make, this recipe is an absolute crowd pleaser and still very much in-keeping with the Keto lifestyle.

      I had been totally unaware of it until trying some a few months ago under duress. Now, I am the first to order them! It really is odd when eating them, so easy to forget it’s cheese! 🙂 x
