Cheese lovers take note: Halloumi is a cheese that won’t melt and make a mess when heated on the grill. The cheese, which is made from sheep’s milk, gets a nice char on the outside when grilled and it makes a great appetizer. Here’s how chef Bobby Flay suggests cooking halloumi: Brush on a little olive oil and place the cheese onto a medium hot grill for two minutes on each side, or until marked. Then remove and slice. Serve with grilled pita bread, fruit, or eat on its own.
