Grilled Cheese (minus the bread)

Who doesn't like a good grilled cheese??? You loved it as a kid and I know you all eat it now. But what if I told you the rules you've lived by since childhood are about to be turned upside down. It's grilled cheese, minus the bread, Greek style.

For our July 4th get together, I knew we needed a couple of surprises to keep our guests tastebuds on their toes. So grilled Halloumi it was - a type of hard Greek cheese. (Around here you can find it Whole Foods, Roche Brothers and even some Stop & Shop locations). Just take the block of cheese and brush some olive oil, salt and pepper on each side. Place it on the grill and patiently wait. I promise there will be no melting through the grates and you don't have to "carefully watch" this grilled cheese. You're looking for those great grill marks on each side (5-6 mins each side depending on thickness) and a softer inside like good ole mozzarella. But the taste, now that will blow you away - salty, gooey and perfect goodness.

You're guests will be more than happy that Grilled Cheese made an appearance, but even happier to know it's got a more adult side!
