Grilled Cheese and Cucumber Hors-d’oeuvres

  1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown the cheese in the oil for about 1 minute on each side or until just starting to melt. Deglaze the skillet with the ouzo. Remove from the heat. Transfer to a plate.
  2. On a work surface, align the cucumber ribbons. Place a slice of cheese at one end of each ribbon and wrap tightly. Place on a serving plate.
  3. Sprinkle the hors-d’oeuvres with fresh thyme leaves. Delicious with Sparkling Grapefruit Gin (see recipe).


Choose a firm or semi-firm salted cheese with a mild flavour (plain) that keeps its shape while cooking. This is a great opportunity to discover grilling cheeses such as Haloumi.
