Did you know you could grill a big hunk of cheese?! Halloumi has an incredibly high melting point, making it perfect for grilling. The result is a warmed, salty, chewy-hard cheese perfect for all kinds of uses. Here's how to do it.


1 (8 oz) package halloumi cheese

1 tablespoon olive oil


Slice the halloumi block into eight (1 oz) slices.

Brush the halloumi slices with olive oil on both sides.

Heat a nonstick grill pan over medium heat, about 5 minutes. If you don't own a grill pan, a regular nonstick pan will work, although the fried cheese won't look as pretty without the grill marks.

Place the cheese slices in the pan (work in two batches if necessary). Cook 3 minutes on each side, until crisp and browned. Serve immediately.
