  • 450 grams halloumi cheese cut into 6 even thick slices
  • ½ cup flour all purpose (plain)
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • ½ cup breadcrumbs panko
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 6 burger buns wholemeal, brioche, white
  • ¼ cabbage finely shredded (see note 1)
  • 3 tomatoes sliced
  • 6 tablespoon aioli


  • Dip the cut halloumi slices in flour, then dip it ino the eggwash and finally in the breadcrumbs. Ensure they are evenly coated - lay them on a tray lined with baking paper and place them in the fridge for half an hour.
  • Pour the olive oil into a small - medium sized pan. Fry the halloumi on a medium heat three at a time making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
  • Fry them for 3 mins each side until they are golden. Drain the halloumi on an oven rack and place in the oven to keep warm (this ensures the cheese stays soft).
  • Construct your burger by adding some aioli, the shredded cabbage, tomatoes, fried halloumi cheese and more aioli.



  • Go authentic! I can offer you the best tip for making these halloumi burgers - use traditional halloumi cheese. 
  • Don't overcook. When frying, be wary of overcooking the cheese - you may find that it gets too soft.
  • Grill instead of fry. If you're not a fan of breading the cheese, try pan frying it or grilling it instead. Grilled halloumi still tastes fantastic.
  • Use different greens.  Swap out the cabbage for Iceberg or Romaine lettuce - they make great substitutes.
  • Add avocado.  It will enhance the creaminess of the burger.
  • Try a different sauce. Use sriracha instead of aioli for a nice spicy kick.
  • Add roasted peppers for added flavour and texture.
