Grilled Cheese Patty BLT Sandwiches 


For the herb mayo

  • 1 bulb garlic 
  • 1 tsp olive oil 
  • ¾ cup mayonnaise 
  • Zest of 1 lemon 
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice 
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh basil leaves 
  • 2 tbsp minced fresh chives 
  • Sea salt and cracked black pepper 

 For The BLT Sandwiches

  • 8 strips bacon 
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup 
  • 1 package Saputo Halloumi Cheese Patties
  • 8 thick-cut slices your favorite sourdough bread 
  • 1 tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced 
  • 4 sandwich-sized lettuce leaves 
  • 2 avocados, smashed 


  1. Preheat an oven (or grill) to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper fitted with a rack on top. 
  2. Next, prepare your mayo. Trim about ¼-inch from the end of the garlic bulb, exposing the garlic cloves, then drizzle with olive oil and season with a pinch of sea salt. Wrap tightly in foil then roast until golden and creamy, about 35 - 40 minutes. Cool until workable, then squeeze out the garlic cloves and mash into a paste. In a bowl, combine the garlic paste, mayo, lemon zest and juice, basil, chives, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Chill in the fridge while you prepare your sandwiches. 
  3. Meanwhile, on the prepared baking tray, arrange your bacon in an even layer then baste all over with maple syrup. Transfer to the oven and bake until golden and crispy, about 25 - 30 minutes. 
  4. Heat a grill over medium-heat. Drizzle the bread with olive oil and toast on the grill until charred, then add your Saputo Halloumi Cheese Patties and grill until golden and slightly charred on both sides. 
  5. Build your BLT sandwiches on that grilled bread with a heaping portion of mayo, lettuce, tomato, crispy bacon, Saputo Halloumi Cheese Patties, and your second piece of bread spread with smashed avocado. Delicious!
