the-chew_recipe_2773272_1000x400_1455825418709

ingredients
SAGANAKI
1 tablespoon olive oil (plus more)
8 slices halloumi cheese (cut into 1-inch slices, about 8 ounces)
3 sprigs oregano
2 cloves garlic (smashed with skin on)
2 tablespoons Greek brandy
1 lemon (juice)
pita bread (soft and warmed to serve)

directions
Place a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add olive oil. Once hot, add cheese slices, garlic cloves and oregano. Sear the cheese until golden brown, 1-2 minutes then flip and sear on the other side, 1 minute.
Pull pan off the heat. Very carefully, standing away from the pan, add the brandy and flambé with lighter. Return to heat. Allow flame to subside. Add lemon juice and swirl to combine. To finish, drizzle with olive oil.
Serve immediately with warm pita bread.
Tips:
– Have all ingredients prepared ahead of time. The process goes quickly!
– Remove the brandy for a kid-friendly appetizer!
