    Cheesy Vegetarian Scotch Eggs

    Cheesy Vegetarian Scotch Eggs

    This is just one of the best vegetarian scotch eggs you will ever eat!  Quite a claim I know but I created this recipe when I ran my own vegetarian restaurant in the 80's.  It has stood the test of time and still gets lots of oohs and ahhs when you put them on the table. Worth making lots because its a little bit of a fiddle to do just a few. Promise that they will all get eaten!

    Halloumi Cheese

    Halloumi Cheese

    Halloumi cheese cooks very well on the barbecue as it doesn't melt into a puddle as soon as it hits the heat. I prefer to cut quite large cubes of cheese so it doesn't fall between the grid on the barbecue into the fire. Marinade in lemon, garlic and oregano. Skewers work too, although halloumi is prone to break when you try to turn them over. Grill to form a lovely brown crust.

    • Time: 10 minutes plus cooking time of about 10 minutes.
