Happy Gobble Gobble Day! Is your turkey already marinating? Have you finished making the cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie yet?
Or maybe you are of Caribbean heritage like me with Macaroni Pie and Fish Cakes on the menu. No matter what side dishes you have, turkey is required meat on Thanksgiving Day, but after eating turkey all day today you’re going to be turkey’d out by tomorrow, right? So try this Middle Eastern inspired breakfast tomorrow while you recuperate after your turkey intoxication.
After over a month of exploring the cuisine of Donna Hay with the I Heart Cooking Club, it’s apparent that her cuisine is influenced by the flavors of the Mediterranean especially Italy and Greece with artichokes, figs, feta & Ricotta cheese in a lot of her recipes.
Halloumi is an unaged cheese from Cypress that is sold in a light brine with salt and mint. I am a halloumi fanatic and often include it with my breakfast, in sandwiches or in salads. For this week’s Donna Hay Easy Entertaining theme, grilled halloumi with Middle Eastern flavors of oregano and sumac sounded delicious.
While she recommends serving it with toasted pita, I served it with home fries for breakfast. Overnight guests and not sure what to serve for breakfast. Here is one that can be done in a jiffy!
- 8 oz. halloumi, sliced
- 1 tablespoon herbed olive oil
- a few sprigs of oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon sumac
Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add a few sprigs of oregano. Place halloumi slices and fry until golden brown on both sides.
Sprinkle the halloumi slices with sumac.
Serve with home fries.
