1 firm, tart apple (such as Granny Smith), quartered and cored

1 package (8 ounces) halloumi cheese, cut into 8 slices

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons torn fresh basil

Ground black pepper, to taste

Slices of crusty bread, to serve

Heat a panini press or countertop grill to medium-high.

Slice each apple quarter into 3 slices. Arrange the slices on the grill, lower the top and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until just tender and lightly browned on the outside. Arrange the slices on a serving platter.

Use a paper towel to wipe the grill to remove any moisture left by the apples. Add the cheese slices, lower the top and cook until browned on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes. Arrange the cheese slices on the platter with the apples.

Drizzle the apples and cheese with the honey, then sprinkle with basil and pepper. Serve with the bread.

Serves four.
