How To Cook Halloumi Cheese Toast In The Air Fryer
Begin by opening the Halloumi cheese and slicing it into 1-inch strips. Coat the strips of Halloumi in olive oil spray and add to an air fryer basket that has also been coated in oil.
Air fry the Halloumi at 360F for 10 minutes. Shift the cheese halfway and spray or coat again with olive oil. The time may vary depending on your air fryer. If not golden brown after 10 minutes, add more time in two-minute increments.
For the toast, you can prepare it in a toaster if desired. However, if you would like to air fry the toast, lay two slices of sourdough in the air fryer basket. Air fry at 400F for 3-5 minutes, flipping halfway, or until the desired toasted color is reached.
When the halloumi and toast are done, begin to assemble your fried halloumi toast.
Assemble the toast by adding butter, jam, and then the air-fried halloumi cheese. You can leave the cheese in strips or bust it up into smaller, bite-size pieces. Enjoy!
