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!!!

Easy Halloumi Cheese Pie

Ingredients
425gr puff pastry (1 pastry phyllo)
450gr halloumi cheese (grated)
2 large eggs (beaten)
1 cup strained Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons fine semolina
4 tablespoons chopped fresh or dried peppermint
2 teaspoons baking powder

Preparation Method
1) Preheat the oven to 170ºC (350ºF) fan forced.
2) In a rectangular pie baking pan, lay puff pastry to cover the bottom and the sides of the baking pan.
3) In a bowl mix together the halloumi cheese, the eggs, the olive oil and the yogurt; add semolina, baking powder and peppermint.
4) Pour the halloumi mixture on top of the puff pastry.
5) Bake for about 40 – 45 minutes or until the top of the pie becomes golden brown.
6) Serve hot or cold.

A lighter version could be to omit the puff pastry. The baking time should be reduced 35’ minutes.
