Friends! I'm back and newly refreshed and revamped!
Did you notice that fridgespiration has a new and improved look and layout? Two features that I am most excited about are that you can now search easily for my original receipes as well as some of my favorites taken from other sources. I've been a little MIA lately because I've been enjoying delving into old cookbooks and food magazines. Why not share these great finds with you too? Stay tuned, I will be posting these types of posts soon.
But for now, a fridgespiration about cheese. Fried cheese. Need I say more?
Cooking with Halloumi is fun and delicious. It's a middle eastern style cheese that is now becoming available in main stream grocery stores. You'll likely see it more in the summer since it's often marketed as a grilling cheese, but it's just too good to be seasonal.
To pan-fry Halloumi, just slice and cook on med-high heat for 2-3 minutes per side. It will get a golden brown of crunchy cheese delishisness.
The other night I paired it with some pan fried chicken sausage - a staple in my house for last minute emergeny meals! For a little more substance, the cheese was served on sliced tomato.
