  • 1 package halloumi or halloumi-style cheese
  • olive oil


Pre-heat your indoor or ourdoor grill to medium heat.

Slice halloumi cheese into wide, 1/2 inch thick slices and lightly brush each side with olive oil.

Carefully place on grill for just a few minutes on each side (about 2-3 minutes), until lightly browned and gently crisped; do not over-grill.

Halloumi cheese is best served immediately, while it is slightly crispy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside.

Grilled halloumi can be eaten just as it is. Delicious!
