5 Delicious Cheeses That Work Perfectly On The Grill

Grilling is a great way to add some smoky and charred flavors to your favorite foods. But have you ever tried grilling cheese? It may sound odd, but grilling cheese is actually a delicious and easy way to elevate your BBQ game.

When we think about grilling, we often picture juicy steaks, hotdogs, and burgers. However, there's much more to grilling than just meat. Cheese, for example, is a versatile ingredient that can be grilled to perfection and used to add unique flavors to your BBQ dishes. Here are five types of cheese that work exceptionally well on the grill.


1. Halloumi

Halloumi cheese is a Mediterranean cheese that originated from Cyprus, with a high melting point perfect for grilling. It has a unique texture that is chewy, firm, and slightly salty. Grilled halloumi is crispy on the outside and wonderfully soft and gooey on the inside, making it a great addition to any meal. To grill halloumi, slice it into thick pieces, brush it with olive oil and place it directly on the grill. Grill for a few minutes on each side, and enjoy it as a side dish, served with vegetables or on a sandwich.

2. Queso Blanco

Queso Blanco is a soft and creamy cheese from Mexico that's perfect to grill. It's a mild and slightly tangy cheese, a great addition to your grilled vegetables or meats. To grill queso blanco, cut the cheese into thick slices, brush it with oil and place it directly on the grill. Grill for a few minutes on each side until it's lightly browned and soft.

3. Paneer

Paneer is a popular cheese in Indian cuisine that's perfect for vegetarian BBQ dishes. It's a soft and fresh cheese that doesn't melt easily, making it ideal for grilling. Paneer is usually marinated in a mixture of spices, yogurt, and lemon juice before grilling. Once marinated, place the cubes on skewers and grill until golden brown.

4. Feta

Feta cheese is a salty and tangy cheese that's perfect for adding bold flavors to your grilled dishes. It's a crumbly and soft cheese that's easy to sprinkle on top of your grilled vegetables or meats. To grill feta, grill your vegetables or meats first, and sprinkle crumbled feta on top before serving. Or place it directly on the grill for a few minutes to get a crispy texture.

5. Provolone

Provolone cheese is a semi-hard, slightly smoky cheese that's perfect for grilling. Its creamy texture and quick melting make it an excellent option for use on top of burgers or sandwiches. Simply place a slice of provolone on top of your burger or sandwich and grill until it's melted and gooey.
