Honey-Baked Haloumi

Honey-Baked Haloumi

This is Jono’s go-to dinner party dish, and its simplicity makes the haloumi sing. Lemon, honey, oregano — all classic Greek flavours, and heroing my favourite squeaky cheese — DELICIOUS! Enjoy as an entrée or a side to the main event.  It’s delicious with roast chicken, and the roasted lemon slices are edible, too!

Makes: 4 serves
Takes: 25 minutes


200g haloumi cheese
2 Tbsp honey
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 lemon, sliced
Small handful fresh oregano leaves
Salt & pepper

Method: Preheat your oven to 180°C. Slice haloumi into thick slices and place in an ovenproof dish. Drizzle over honey and olive oil. Scatter lemon slices and oregano leaves around the haloumi, and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 18–20 minutes, or until golden-brown and bubbling. Serve immediately.
