Mihaliç peyniri is an aged sheep's milk cheese from Turkey.

Similar to kelle cheese[1] or beyaz peynir, Mihaliç peyniri is stored in brine. The curds are placed in hot water and stirred, then left in the water to harden and acquire a firm, slightly elastic texture and finally are salted and dried.

It is made in various sizes and shapes, usually balls or slices, and can be used as a substitute for Parmigiano Reggiano.[2] It is often used in salads and baked dishes.[3]
