Halloumi Sticks 1/3 cup flour 1 egg beaten 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs 2 Tbsp sesame seeds 9 oz block halloumi cheese cut into sticks Zaatar Marinara Sauce 3 to tomatoes 3 garlic cloves 1 Tbsp zaatar ¼ cup fresh basil 1 Tbsp olive oil Salt & pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place the flour in one small bowl, the eggs in another bowl and the flour in a third bowl. Add the sesame seeds to the flour and stir to combine.
Dredge the halloumi sticks in the flour, shake off excess, then into the eggs, and finally into the panko sesame seed mixture.
Place the halloumi sticks on the prepared baking sheet and bake until the sesame seeds become golden, about 20 minutes.
Zaatar Marinara Sauce
Preheat the oven to 425°F
Place tomatoes in the roasting pan; add garlic cloves, basil, zaatar, olive oil, salt and pepper. Toss with your hands.
Place the pan in the oven and roast until tomatoes have reduced and are starting to get a few black edges, about 45 to 50 minutes. The pan should still have some juices, not be dry.
When coating the halloumi, keep one hand wet and one dry so that you don't get into a sticky mess!
Don't let the fries touch when you place them on the baking sheet.
Bake the fries in a pre-heated oven for the best results.
