I can’t believe I’ve never thought of this idea before! As you probably know if you’ve ever come to this site before, I’m obsessed with halloumi…I mean, who isn’t? 

I’ve used it in some unlikely places before including a halloumi curry, in a halloumi pasta dish and as a replacement for meat on skewers with satay sauce.

And now I’m excited to share these delicious halloumi and potato cakes with a kick of onion in there. They’re easy to make and can be topped with pretty much anything you fancy.

Why we love these halloumi and potato cakes…

They’re easy to make and once you’ve grated your potato, onion and halloumi you’re just minutes away from a super crispy and browned potato cake.

They can be served any time of day. I love them topped with a runny fried egg, some greens, yoghurt and chilli oil which works as a breakfast perfectly but can also do for an easy dinner. 

They also make great leftovers and any extras can be stored in the fridge and then quickly reheated in a hot pan when you’re ready to serve them. 

You can serve them with any toppings you like. They’d be great served with a fresh and light salad, some grilled meat or just on their own with your favourite sauce for dipping.

Potato and Halloumi Cake Ingredients

Potatoes: These are peeled and grated.

Halloumi: This is also grated and stirred into the potato for that salty flavour.

Onion: Finally I like to add an onion just for another layer of flavour.

Olive Oil: For frying.

Greek Yoghurt: This is the perfect thing to counter act the slight saltiness from the cheese.

Eggs: I like these fried until just set.

Chilli Oil: A drizzle of chilli oil is the perfect way to finish these potato cakes.

How to make halloumi and potato rosti

Make the potato cake mix: Grate the potato, onion and halloumi and mix together in a bowl. Add the flour, salt, pepper and olive oil and mix well. 

Fry the cake: Heat a little olive oil in a small frying pan and add a quarter of the mixture. Use the back of a spoon and flatten the mixture to the edges of the pan. Cook for five minutes then flip and cook for another 5 minutes on the other side. Repeat 3 more times with the rest of the mixture.

Make the topping: Put the potato cakes on plates and fry the eggs to your liking. Place on top of the potato cakes and add the yoghurt, watercress, eggs and chilli oil.
