Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat for easy cleanup.

  2. Cut each slice of bacon in half crosswise, creating 16 shorter strips of bacon.

  3. Take a strip of bacon and spread a small amount of pesto sauce along its length.

  4. Place a cube of haloumi cheese at one end of the bacon strip and then roll it up tightly, securing the roll with a toothpick or small skewer. Repeat this process for all the bacon strips.

  5. Arrange the bacon-wrapped haloumi bites on the prepared baking sheet, making sure the seam side of the bacon is facing down.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and cooked to your desired level of doneness. Keep an eye on them, as cooking times can vary depending on your oven.

  7. Once done, remove the bites from the oven and let them cool slightly for a few minutes.

  8. Optionally, garnish with fresh basil leaves for an extra burst of flavor and color.

  9. Serve the Bacon, Pesto, and Haloumi Bites warm as an appetizer or snack. They can be enjoyed on their own or with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as marinara sauce or a balsamic reduction.
