Halloumi Veggie Sandwich

I think one of the greatest downfalls of the United States (besides our blatant inaction to pass legislation on a comprehensive plan to address climate change) is our lack of halloumi cheese.

It’s quite surprising how many people survive without it. After you try this sandwich, I guarantee you’ll be on the phone with your senator asking for more readily available stock piles of this wonderful ingredient.

This sandwich was created in my friend Paul’s kitchen when the two of us were hungover and hungry. If I can make this with a wicked headache and little coordination, you can easily make this for a great lunch to go or Sunday snack. This tastes amazing hungover, and probably even better with a better night’s rest and a couple advil (or is that the hangover that’d be improved….)

My recipe makes two sandwiches, but obviously you can make just one, or six, or ten…. totally up to your digression. I must reiterate though that I’ve given you fair warning; you’re going to fall in obessesive, maybe unhealthy, love with halloumi.

Ingredients:

  • 4 slices of sturdy bread, multigrain is good
  • 4 pieces (small rectangles) of halloumi cheese, Trader Joe’s has it!
  • 1/2 a medium onion, sliced
    • 1/2 tsp paprika
    • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 slices of veggie bacon (or real bacon if you’re freakin lame)
  • 2 or 3 radishes, thinly sliced (this shit is hard, just do your best)
  • 1 small tomato, sliced how you like it
  • Mayo
  • Hot Sauce (optional)

Directions:

  1. Toast that bread up really nicely, however you like it. I recommend just lightly browned.
  2. Take a medium pan, heat it to medium-high heat and place the halloumi cheese in to cook. You’re going to want to brown it on both sides, a nice golden color. About 3 to 5 minutes on each side.
  3. In the meantime, mix together the onions with paprika. Take the cheese out of the pan, heat the olive oil, and proceed to cook the onions until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  4. Take a separate pan of good size and place the veggie bacon in with a little bit of oil. Cook according to the directions on the box (it’s super easy).
  5. Prepare the sandwich by spreading hot sauce on one slice of bread and mayo on the other. Take the halloumi cheese and place it on one side, then proceed with the veggie bacon, tomatoes, radishes, and finally the onions.
  6. Oh my gosh, you’re done! and you have an a-mazing sandwich; one worthy of your dreams and admiration.
