Halloumi Cheese Made of 100% Sheep's Milk

Finally I have found a Halloumi cheese that has no dairy and is only made of 100% sheep's milk. It is Marks and Spencer's award winning Halloumi, it's gorgeous and you can enjoy it without consuming all those cows growth hormones, perfect if you have allergies or sinus problems as sheep's cheese does not aggravate them.

My favourite quick meal is to put some frozen spinach pieces and some frozen prawns in an ovenproof dish, place in the grill for 20 minutes top with slices or chunks of halumi and return to the grill for a few minutes until its all melted and a little brown on the top.
It is also fab as a starter- put some large tomato slices in the grill topped with sliced halumi cook for about 10 minutes until the halumi is pale brown on top, serve drizzled with balsamic vinegar or a little olive oil and a sprig of parsley (you can also use cooking apples or peach slices in place of the tomatoes)
You can cube halumi and skewer it onto kebabs and if you add it to scrambled eggs or omelettes its delicious just make sure it melts completely into the eggs.
