Servings 6 burgers
- 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.
- When you shred the cabbage add some salt and a squeeze of lemon - to give it a bit of a zing!
