Greek Flatbread with Grilled Halloumi

Greek Flatbread

Greek flatbread or Greek pitta, is a soft pocketless pita, making it easy to wrap around your chosen filling.

Honey glazed halloumi is a delicious and different and easy midweek dinner idea.

Stuff it into a flatbread or pitta along with a good helping of salad, and if you're extra hungry add a side of fries.

What is Halloumi?

Halloumi is a traditional Cypriot cheese made from a mixture of goat's and sheep's milk. Sometimes it is made with cow's milk.

It has a high melting point so it can easily be fried or grilled. If halloumi is overcooked then it does tend to make a squeak noise when you eat it - bizarre I know! 

So what is Greek flatbread?

Greek flatbread is a soft flatbread made with yeast and is commonly served with souvlaki, gyros, salad and dips.

It's so much softer than regular pitta bread, for this reason, I often use them when I make lamb koftas with tzatziki.

Ingredients in this recipe

  • 1 x 225g pack of halloumi
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons runny honey
  • Sweet pepper flakes
  • 2 x Greek flatbreads or pitta, salad and your favourite sauce

Of course, you can make it at home but where can you buy Greek flatbread? 

You'll find it in any good supermarket or over on Amazon via a Morrisons same-day delivery. Personally, I love the brand Deli Kitchen.
