    I’ve been unable to find Halloumi in US grocery stores. Is Bread cheese OK? I believe it’s Finnish, Juustoleipa.

    Tried it today. Are you sure about the butter? It was so much, the shrooms were frying in butter. :)

    The mayonnaise is not listed in the nutritional information as it is listed as an optional ingredient.

    Is it too bad for the carbs count to use Hellmann's or Heinz mayonnaise in strictly keto recipes that call for that ingredient? Thank you!

    It likely won't affect the carb count of the recipe but many people choose to avoid vegetable oils like canola or soybean oil. You can read more at this link.

    I am sorry that you found this too salty! Different brands of halloumi may have different amounts of salt in them. Also make sure and check you are using unsalted butter. The other saltiness could have come from the brininess of the olives.

    Note... I had to fry the cheese for MUCH longer than 2 mins on each side. But this was absolutely delicious!
