2 red peppers in brine
300 gr formaella cheese or haloumi sliced into thick pieces
6 sun-dried tomatoes (from a jar with olive oil)
2 tbsp dry basil and thyme
2 sprigs fresh basil
salt and pepper
fresh bread 


Preheat oven to 200°C

Spread a bit of oil over the formaella, add salt and pepper and grill for a few minutes until soft. If you don't have a barbeque, use one of those ribbed pans that give the impression of grilling.

Slice the bread and heat in the oven, making sure it doesn't get dry and crunchy!

Strain the peppers  from their juices and place them on the slices of grilled bread.

Add the formaella and finally the sun-dried tomatoes.  Finish off with some whole fresh basil leaves.


Substitute the cheese for another type of hard but meltable local one
