Halloumi. Potatoes. Lemon. All of these are good on their own, but throw them all together in a cast iron pan under a broiler, and it gets exponentially better. That’s all I really need to say to preface this lol.
- 2 T olive oil
- 1 lb potatoes, sliced 1/8 in thick (pretty sure I used baby reds)
- Sea salt
- Fresh ground black pepper
- .25 c fresh lemon juice
- Zest of 1 lemon
- 8 oz halloumi cheese, sliced thin
- 2 T dried oregano
Preheat the broiler and set the top oven rack so it’s about 6 in away from, the broiler. Add olive oil to a 12 inch cast iron skillet and spread it evenly. Add your potatoes, shingling the slices around the pan in a single layer (pic 1). Season with salt and pepper. Broil until the potatoes have puffed up a bit and have browned on top, and are mostly cooked through, about 7 mins.
Then, remove from the broiler and pour lemon juice and sprinkle the lemon zest all over the potatoes. Layer the halloumi cheese in an even layer on top (pic 3) and broil until the cheese is golden brown and the potatoes are fully cooked through, roughly four mins.
Then sprinkle oregano on top and enjoy (pic 4).
