Storing and reheating
This dish will last in the fridge for up to three days, though it is best to make this recipe fresh. The halloumi and bacon won't reheat well and may lose their texture once refrigerated. If you're planning on making this dish for the week, prepare the brussels sprouts ahead of time and then make the bacon and halloumi prior to serving.
To reheat any leftovers you have in the fridge, just pop the container in the microwave for 1-2 minutes or until fully warmed. Serve and enjoy!
Can you freeze this recipe?
Unfortunately, this recipe is not freezer friendly. The halloumi cheese and cooked bacon will not reheat well after being frozen.
