A filling vegetarian breakfast sandwich with fried cheese, eggs, and fresh summer tomatoes.



  • 4 ounces halloumi
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes (or something similar in size)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 to 2 cups baby arugula or spinach
  • 2 eggs (fried to your liking)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 4 slices toasted bread


  1. To prep, cut the halloumi in to 8, 1/2 ounce slices and slice the grape tomatoes in half lengthwise. Heat olive oil in a skillet large enough to fry the halloumi and tomatoes. Heat over medium heat and add the halloumi followed be the tomatoes, cut-side down. Fry the halloumi until golden on each side, 1 to 2 minutes per side and cook the tomatoes until charring on the cut side, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove both from heat the skillet.
  2. Assemble the sandwiches by layering half the arugula, followed by the halloumi, fried tomatoes, egg, and the top piece of bread with a smear of mustard on it. Serve immediately.


Tips & Tricks: For an extra boost, slather the bread with hummus in place of the mustard (or with!)
