Burgers don’t have to contain meat to be delicious, filling and extremely satisfying! Halloumi is a perfect alternative for a meat patty. Our Sweet Chilli Halloumi Burger has it all – the saltiness of halloumi, the sweetness and the heat from sweet chilli and all the lovely textures of the veggies. Arranged in a buttery brioche bun, these are the most delectable summer burgers to impress any vegetarians and meat-lovers alike!

I honestly don’t know anyone who doesn’t like halloumi. It is such a wonderful and very unique type of cheese that not many other things can compete or even come close to its distinctive texture and flavour. What is more, it is ridiculously versatile. We use halloumi in burgers, stews, salads and grain bowls (I am yet to come up with a halloumi dessert :)).

I also don’t know anyone who doesn’t enjoy a good burger! Here, at Somebody Feed Seb, we are no exception and cook burgers on the grill outside in the summertime, and inside in our kitchen when the weather is starting to become gloomy (an option we often have to take here in North Wales).

How We Make Sweet Chilli Halloumi Burgers?

Gather all your ingredients. Slice the tomatoes, shred the lettuce and thinly slice the red onion. Cut the avocado into slices and drizzle some lime juice all over to prevent the avocado from browning.

Cut the halloumi in half sideways so you have two slices (there’s normally a crease where the block of halloumi tends to split naturally), dab them with a paper towel to remove excess moisture.

In a bowl, mix the flour and chilli powder. Roll the halloumi patties in the mixture and set them aside.

Heat a frying pan with a tbsp of oil. Once hot, add the halloumi patties and fry for about 5 minutes on each side until crisp and golden. Don’t move them too much or they will lose their crispy coating, but make sure they aren’t burning.

In the meantime, mix mayo, lime juice and sweet chilli in a small bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning if required.

Lightly toast the brioche buns. Spread some of the sweet chilli mayo on the bottom half of the brioche bun, top with shredded lettuce leaves, avocado and tomatoes. Place a crispy halloumi slice on top and drizzle with the remaining mayo. Scatter some red onion and top with the top half of the brioche bun.
