These are not your Grandmothers cheeseballs folks! Wow. I love these little things. Absolutely perfect heavy hors d’oeuvre for any event. The halloumi cheese gives an amazing texture and structure. The spices pop through which make this bite really fun. I am 100% going to be serving these at my next dinner party.

Beyond being tasty, they are very easy to make. Pop all of the ingredients in a bowl, mix, form into little balls, and fry till golden in a pan. Really lovely and I hope you enjoy them!

Halloumi, carrot, herb, fritters.
