Heavenly halloumi


These are even nice if they are barbecued.

  1. Fry the onions and garlic in a little olive oil until softened a little, just to take the edge off them
  2. Allow the onions to cool a little before handling
  3. In a bowl, add the onions and the rest of the ingredients apart from the buns and the cheese and squidge the mixture through your fingers so it's really well mixed
  4. Cut the cheese into four pieces, divide the meat into four and mould the meat around the cheese so that it's completely covered.
  5. Fry in olive oil for about 4 to 5 minutes per side
  6. Serve in the buns with the salad leaves and sliced tomatoes


You can make these stretch further by adding a cup or so of breadcrumbs. Mix well and rest for an hour if you have time, as this will allow the breadcrumbs to absorb any moisture.

Experiment with some of the ideas below, though not all in one burger!

For a really authentic look, get a 1980's Wimpy Bar style squeezy tomato sauce dispenser!
