Stuff to know
This amount will yield 9-11 burgers.
Don’t make the mixture too wet or the burgers may break during frying. The amount of bread crumbs needed may vary depending on how wet the vegetables are.
It is possible to make the burgers a day ahead and store them in the fridge.
Serve the burgers for instance with a jacket sweet potato or a sweet potato and spinach salad.
Be careful with the seasoning since halloumi is already salty.
Halloumi is a cheese from Cyprus. It is one of the few cheese who do not melt when heated and is therefore ideal for grilling.
