Let's Go: Can I Make "Grilled Halloumi [Cheese]"?

Updated: Aug 24


I saw this recipe on the Food Network app and it looked good! The grill marks looked so nice on it, but it was hard to believe that I could grill cheese like that. Haha! :) I had seen Halloumi used on some cooking competition shows on the Food Network, but I had not tried it yet.


What is Halloumi?

"Halloumi is a Cypriot cheese traditionally made from goat's and sheep's milk, or a mixture of the two. Cow's milk is sometimes used. It's most appreciated as a grilling cheese because it maintains its shape when heated and grills well. Halloumi is moderately high in fat and a good source of protein. It's rich in calcium and is also a source of zinc, magnesium, vitamin A, and B vitamins."

(I had batch cooked some before)

I turned my grill pan on the stove on high until it was smoking hot. I cut the cheese into chunks.


Then I put the cheese on the grill...and wondering if there would be nice grill marks. Haha! :)


After 1 or 2 min., I flipped them! Wow! The grill marks looked really good!


I left them there for another minute or 2.

Then I put everything together!


RESULT: Success! :)


We are good at this! I was so proud of the grill marks and it was really good! Halloumi is firm, sort of like tofu and has a slight saltiness to it. It kind of tastes like feta too. I wouldn't have probably tried Halloumi without seeing that class.


It's also a quick little appetizer and it's fancy looking and slightly exotic, like taking a trip to Cyprus. :)


Give it a try! We are good at this!
