How to make halloumi Yorkshire puddings

Rejoice, you can now add to halloumi to your Christmas spread: just switch up your Yorkshire pudding recipe.

A TikTok chef, @melizcooks, has shared a viral recipe for ‘halloumi Yorkshire puds’, or as she calls them, hellimli Yorkshire puddings (which is the Turkish word for combining the salty cheese ‘hellim’ with other foods).

Meliz credits her mum for coming up with this recipe years ago – and now she’s shared it with the rest of us, because sharing is caring.

She said: ‘They have always brought me so much joy, and if you’ve never made them, this is now your cue.

‘I guarantee you’ll be hooked once you make them.

‘Delicious served with a drizzle of honey and a cup of tea, or with a roast dinner (especially lamb, which is complimented by that lovely minty flavour).’

Here’s how to make them.

Mum’s Hellimli Yorkshire Puddings: THESE. THESE. They have always brought me so much joy, and if you’ve never made them, this is now your cue. The full recipe is also on my YouTube channel and blog (you might have to search back a few years) and I guarantee you’ll be hooked once you make them. Delicious served with a drizzle of honey and a cup of tea, or with a roast dinner (especially lamb, which is complimented by that lovely minty flavour). Ingredients (makes 12) 170ml milk* 3 medium eggs 70g plain flour A good pinch of salt 100g hellim (halloumi) cheese (coarsley grated) 1 tbsp dried mint 1 tsp sesame seeds 1 tsp nigella seeds Around 40ml sunflower oil Whisk milk and eggs together, add flour, whisk again, add salt, whisk again then chill the batter for at least an hour, or even overnight. Mix together the hellim, dried mint and seeds and leave to one side. Preheat your oven to 230c fan / 250c. the oven is hot, fill each round of a muffin tray with 3/4 tsp oil (beef dripping is also great) making sure you grease the sides so you can easily pop out the puds when they’re cooked. Place the tray on the top shelf of the oven for around 20 mins until the oil is smoking – leave longer if necessary. Take the Yorkshire pudding batter out of the fridge, give it another whisk, then carefully take the muffin tray out of the oven (closing the oven door behind you) and quickly pour in equal measures of the batter into each round – the batter should really sizzle as it hits the hot oil. Quickly top each round with a tbsp of the hellim mixture. Quickly pop the tray back in the oven on the middle shelf, and turn the heat down to down to 190C fan / 210c- DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR until the Yorkshire puddings are a dark golden brown colour, which should take around 30 minutes, or a little longer if necessary. Take the puds straight out of the tray and onto a wire rack. *I used semi-skimmed but whole milk or plant based like oat, almond or soya are all fine #melizcooks #hellim #helimli #halloumi #yorkshirepudding #yorkshirepuddings #meze #easyrecipes #delicious #fyp #foryou

It’s gone down well with TikTok users, as someone wrote: ‘I’m not a fan of making yorkshire puddings but I really want to make these’.

You’ve got to give these a try if you love the Cypriot cheese.
