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.
