I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of

Grilled Halloumi Cheese & Tomatoes

Serves 3-4 - I love this simple appetizer: grilled cheese, literally. You’d seldom think to use an outside grill for cheese because it would just melt all over, but Halloumi is a super hearty Greek cheese that’s just perfect for grilling. And served alongside some grilled tomatoes it’s even better.


  • 8 ounce block Halloumi cheese
  • 6 roma tomatoes, halved
  • Extra virgin live oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Fresh ground pepper
  • Baguette, grilled for serving


  1. Heat grill to medium
  2. Slice cheese in half to make 2 half inch thick pieces
  3. Brush both sides of each cheese and grill until well marked on all sides
  4. When you flip the cheese, oil tomatoes and add to grill cut side down
  5. Cook tomatoes until softened and marked – remove to serving plate with cheese
  6. Sprinkle cheese & tomatoes with oregano, drizzle with a little extra oil and serve with bread
