Haloumi & Mint Rissoles

  • Serves 6
  • Preparation time: 20 minutes
  • Cooking time: 15 minutes

Rissoles can be assembled a few hours before cooking and refrigerated. Remove from fridge 20 minutes before cooking. • These rissoles are great served with a green salad and crunchy potato wedges. • If you can’t find pork and veal mince, try using beef mince.


  • 500g good quality pork and veal mince
  • 1 tbs finely chopped mint
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 90g Lemnos Haloumi, cut into 6 cubes
  • olive oil, for cooking


  1. Combine mince, mint, spring onions, garlic and seasonings in a large bowl and divide mixture into 6 portions. Completely encase a cube of haloumi in each mince portion.
  2. Heat a frypan with oil over medium heat and cook rissoles until golden brown. Transfer to a 180°C oven for 8-10 minutes or cooked through. Serve immediately.
