If you know me, you know I love my halloumi. Halloumi is a semi-hard, unripened, brined cheese made from a mixture of goat’s and sheep’s milk, and sometimes also cow’s milk. It has a high melting point and so can easily be fried or grilled.

I love dill pickle so when I first tried Buster Rhinos dill pickle pork rinds, I knew I had to crush them and use to bread some halloumi. There is nothing better than a semi melted cheese, crispy coating and the taste of dill!

Check out the video how I made the halloumi fries and the full recipe down below.

  • 200 grams halloumi cheese slice halloumi lengthwise into 1 inch strips
  • 4 oz crushed pork rind crumbs I used dill flavoured pork rinds
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • 1 cup olive oil for frying, depending on your pan size you may need more or less


  • Pat your halloumi dry
  • Cut your halloumi into 6 strips as in the video above
  • Scramble 2 eggs in a bowl
  • Crush the pork rinds, I used a blender, then place in a bowl
  • Dip your halloumi stick in the egg first
  • Coat in the crushed pork rinds
  • Dip again in the egg
  • Coat once again with the crushed pork rinds
  • Place each on a dish with wax paper or parchment
  • Use a shallow pan and fill with about 1 inch of olive oil
  • Turn your stovetop element to medium/low
  • Once hot enough, place a halloumi stick into the oil
  • After 1 minute or so, use two forks to flip the halloumi and brown on each side.
  • Brown on each side until golden brown.
  • They will brown fast so keep an eye on them and flip before they burn
  • When golden brown to your liking place on a dish lined with paper towel to soak the oil


Enjoy them while they are still warm as the cheese will be nice and melty, otherwise they will firm up again if you let them cool too much.

  1. 5 stars
    I made these today and they are the best thing ever. I would assume I could use any flavoured pork rinds.

  2. I just got an order of assorted pork rinds from Buster Rhinos and I was wondering what to do with the dill pickle ones as they’re not my favourite. I think this will be a great way to use them! Thanks you for the recipe 🙂
