Well, after I posted that April was grilled cheese month, my tastebuds focused on grilled cheese sandwiches.
I guess I could’ve made one as I do have some cheese here but I don’t have bread soÂ I reasoned ifÂ I had to go out to buy bread, I may as well just go outÂ to buy the sandwich.
Visions of Feast’s grilled halloumi sandwich floated across my brain. IÂ picked upÂ the phone.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a digital camera or I would post the photo for you but you’ll just have to follow along in my hungry mind’s eye.
Picture a crusty rustic roll about six or seven inches long filled with grilled eggplant pieces, roasted red peppers,Â fine strands of caramelized onions and, of course, a nice slab of semi-soft melty halloumi cheese.
The roll (though thick) was grilled as was the halloumi cheese.
Halloumi cheese comes from the Middle East and has a slightly salty flavor.
Grilling is recommended before serving. I have grilled rounds of halloumi cheese in a pan with olive oil and fresh herbs then served on toasted baguette as an appetizer.
Along with the sandwich came a small nicely dressed green salad. Had it not been the middle of the afternoon, I might have opted for a glass of wine but sparking water was a runner up.
The month is still young. I’m sure there will be more grilled cheese sandwiches in my future.
