  • 4 slices halloumi cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • Freshly chopped mint
  • Paprika
  • Olive oil for shallow frying


  • 1 Heat a generous slick of olive oil in a non-stick frying pan.
  • 2 Add the halloumi to the pan and brown on one side.
  • 3 Crack the eggs over the halloumi, aiming to keep the cheese nestled under the egg.
  • 4 Baste the eggs until the white has set and the yolk still runny.
  • 5 Season with paprika and tip onto a plate.
  • 6 Mix the yogurt with fresh mint and enough water to create a runny dressing.
  • 7 Drizzle the dressing over the eggs and serve hot.
