Halloumi is that famous squeaky Greek cheese, which adds a fantastic salty note to any sandwich. You can griddle it first for flavour, as this cheese won’t ooze.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
60g halloumi
1 tablespoon butter, at room temperature
2 slices white sourdough bread
small handful spinach
1 tablespoon chopped mint leaves
1 tablespoon pickled jalapeño

Method

  1. Cut the halloumi into 3 slices and dry fry it in a frying pan or griddle pan over a medium-high heat for 2 minutes on each side.
  2. Spread the butter on one side of both slices of bread and lay them butter-side down. Lay the halloumi on one of the slices, then add the spinach, mint and jalapeños. Put the other slice of bread on top, with the butter side face up.
  3. Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a medium-high heat, then transfer the sandwich into the pan. Cook for 3 minutes, pressing down with a spatula to help the bread toast, then flip it over and cook for a further 3 minutes until the sandwich is golden and crispy. Alternatively, cook the sandwich in a toasted sandwich maker or a panini press.

Best bread:

  • white sourdough
