Grilled Halloumi Breakfast Sandwich
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 1 sandwich
- 1 large Hawaiian sweet roll (use the sandwich buns if you can find them)
- 1 tablespoon butter or oil divided
- 2 oz halloumi cheese sliced
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons mayo
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha (more or less depending on your heat preference)
- 1 scallion sliced or julienned
- salt + pepper to taste
Toast the sandwich buns either in your skillet or over a grill. Set aside.
Heat half the butter or oil in your skillet over medium high heat. Once melted, add the cheese. Fry on each side until golden brown in spots, about 3-4 minutes per side. Set aside. This step could also be done on a grill if you have one going. In that case, skip the butter/oil, and place the cheese directly on the grill.
Heat the remaining butter or oil over medium heat. Once melted, crack the egg into the skillet. Totally optional step: Once the whites begin to set, you can use a fork to mix up the yolk a bit so that it gets distributed throughout the egg a bit, so there will be yolk in every bite. Cook the egg for about 4 minutes, or until they are cooked to your preferred doneness.
While the egg is cooking, prep the spicy mayo. In a small bowl (or in a measuring cup), mix together the mayo and the Sriracha.
To assemble, spread the spicy mayo on each cut surface of the buns. Layer on the grilled halloumi, egg, scallions, and salt & pepper to taste.
