Easy Halloumi Cheese Pie

Such recipes usually are created when I have friends coming over with a short notice. This pie was created a few months ago, once again with ingredients I had at home.

To be honest I expected a normal result but the pie ended to be very tasty. According to my taste, the puff pastry can be easily omitted.

In a previous post I gave step by step instructions on how you can make your own halloumi cheese, but nowadays I am sure you can find halloumi cheese in all supermarkets.

This recipe was created especially for the “Creative Concoctions #4”, an event which is held in Kopiaste.. to Greek Hospitality.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some ingredients of the Halloumi Pie: Puff pastry, halloumi cheese, yogurt, semolina and eggs.

In a rectangular pie baking pan, lay puff pastry to cover the bottom and the sides of the baking pan.

In a bowl mix together the halloumi cheese, the eggs, the olive oil and the yogurt; add semolina, baking powder and peppermint.

 Pour the halloumi mixture on top of the puff pastry.

 Bake for about 40 – 45 minutes or until the top of the pie becomes golden brown.

Serve hot or cold.

Below you can find the full recipe. Enjoy!!!
