  • 450 g 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 tbsp 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 plate lined with baking paper and place them in the fridge for half an hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 80 deg C and line an oven tray with baking paper. 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 a 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 aioli.



  1. When you shred the cabbage add some salt and a squeeze of lemon - to give it a bit of a zing!
