Halloumi and Sweetcorn Fritters


I made these lovely fritters when I needed a new way to use up my halloumi. They’re super quick and easy to make – I had mine for tea with an avocado salad but I reckon they’d be great for brunch too!

You will need:

1 large tin of sweetcorn or around 275g frozen sweetcorn, left to defrost

Half a packet of halloumi, diced into small cubes

1 red chilli, finely chopped

2 spring onions, finely chopped

a small bunch of coriander/parsley/basil (I used half parsley/half basil)

2 eggs

90g plain flour

75ml milk (I used almond milk but whatever you have is fine)



Pour half the sweetcorn into a food processor and whizz until combined (it doesn’t have to be smooth!)



Combine the whizzed sweetcorn, the whole sweetcorn, cubed halloumi, chilli, spring onions and herbs in a bowl and mix until combined.


In a separate bowl, whisk the flour and eggs, then gradually add the milk to make a pancake mix sort of texture.

Add this to the bowl with the sweetcorn and cheese mix and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Add a tbsp of oil into a frying pan on a medium/high heat, swirl the oil round in the pan until it’s coated then pour a ladle of the mixture into the pan (if you want large fritters it will make around 6, or if you want smaller ones it will make about ten)


Cook for 2-3 minutes until dark brown underneath then turn over and cook for another 2-3 minutes until cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper and repeat the process for the others.
