Haloumi, Chorizo & Mint Patties

  • Makes 24
  • Preparation Time: 30 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 30 minutes

To form perfect patties for entertaining, roll mixture into walnut sized balls, before flattening slightly with your palm. • Serve as a main course by forming larger patties and serving with a minted yogurt on the side with a crisp salad for a delicious summer meal option.

Ingredients:

  • 2 chorizo sausages, finely diced
  • 1 leek, finely chopped
  • 500g potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 180g Lemnos Haloumi, grated
  • finely grated rind of 1 lemon
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbs chopped mint
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 1/4 cup oil, for cooking
  • lemon wedges, for serving

Method:

  1. Saute chorizo and leek in a frypan over medium heat until leek has softened and chorizo has started becoming crisp.
  2. Boil potatoes and garlic in water until tender and drain. Return to saucepan and mash. Add peas and continue mashing until peas are roughly mashed and potato is smooth. Stir in chorizo mixture, egg, breadcrumbs, haloumi, lemon rind, pepper and mint. Form mixture into 24 patties and toss lightly in flour to coat, shaking off excess.
  3. Heat oil in a frypan over medium-low heat and cook patties for 3 minutes on each side until golden. Drain on absorbent paper, arrange on a serving platter and serve with lemon wedges.
