Cypriot Eggy Bread

A smell and a taste most Cypriots recognize from their childhood days...

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup grated halloumi
  • 1/4 tsp dried mint
  • 1 egg
  • thick slices of bread( we used sourdough) -
  • Colive Extra Virgin Olive Oil (to brush and drizzle)
  • sliced tomato (to top)

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 200c. 
  2. Mix dried mint with grated halloumi
  3. Break one egg into the halloumi mint mix and mix well. It shouldn't be a liquid mixture as the halloumi ratio should be higher. 
  4. Lightly brush bread slices with Colive oil.
  5. Spread egg halloumi mint mixture on bread slices.
  6. Place them in a baking tray and put in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes (you can just use the top element if you prefer) Watch them carefully as they might burn quickly. 
  7. Serve with a slice of tomato on top & drizzle with some Colive oil.


They would be perfect for breakfast and brunch and very easy to prepare.
