· 250 g block halloumi, cut into slices

· 1 egg, beaten

· 50 g plain flour

· 50 g panko breadcrumbs

· 1 tablespoon olive oil

· 6 slices white bread

· 1 little gem lettuce, torn

· Sliced gherkins (optional)

For the tartare sauce

· 60 g mayonnaise

· ¼ red onion, finely chopped

· 1 teaspoon capers, rinsed

· Juice ½ lemon

· ½ bunch dill, finely chopped


Heat the oven to 180°C. Pat the halloumi dry with kitchen paper. Put the egg, flour and breadcrumbs in three separate shallow bowls. Dip the slices in the flour, then the egg and finally coat in the breadcrumbs. Arrange on a baking tray lined with baking paper, drizzle with olive oil, then bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden and crisp. Meanwhile, make the tartare sauce by mixing the mayonnaise, red onion, capers, lemon and dill. Spread the tartare on the slices of the bread. Top each with lettuce, gherkins and 2 pieces of halloumi, then sandwich with the remaining slices of bread. Enjoy!
