Why You Should be Cooking with Halloumi Cheese
Sure you can grill cheese, but actually throwing it directly on the grill? Halloumi is one of a very few that fits the bill, and it’s becoming a popular side dish among health-conscious and vegetarian eaters. Widely available throughout the Middle East and Mediterranean, halloumi cheese is making its way into mainstream American cooking and some grocery stores.
Briny and squeaky when raw, it looks and cooks similar to firm tofu but its taste is uniquely its own.

This is a recipe I came up with after having seen a few cheese-based fries recipes floating about the Internet and in magazines. Most such recipes look really delicious – Stretch Armstrong-gooey or soft explosions in the mouth. Oh my! But sadly, the deal-breaker for me is that they are fried. Which I guess is to be expected when something is called fries.
