Halloumi & beet patties with chives creme fraiche

Okey, this one goes straight to the category "tastes better than it looks like". A pain (impossible?) to take stylish photos of, but a joy to eat. So I think I can get over my esthetic ambitions and focus on taste only.


(8 patties)

250 halloumi cheese
3 dl (250 g) grated beets
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
olive oil

150 g creme fraiche
handful of fresh chopped chives
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lemon juice


First prepare the sauce: mix creme fraiche, lemon juice, salt and chopped chives in a bowl.

Grate the halloumi and beets and mix. Add salt and pepper and eggs, mix well. Heat a frying pan and sprinkle with olive oil. Add a good tablespoon dough per of pattie on the pan, pat them flat and fry each side 2-3 minutes until cooked.

Serve hot with honey and creme fraiche sauce.
