INGREDIENTS

For the Vanilla & Honey Oranges:

  • 2 medium minneola oranges (peeled and pulled into segments)
  • ¼ cup local honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt

For the Grilled Cheese:

  • 8 slices butter-crust bread
  • 1½ tablespoons softened butter
  • 8 oz. double cream brie
  • 3.5 oz. (one bar) 72% dark chocolate
  • Vanilla & Honey Oranges
DIRECTIONS

For the Vanilla & Honey Oranges:

  1. Into a medium jar, place the orange segments, honey, vanilla, and salt. Place the lid on the jar and shake to incorporate.
  2. Set aside in the fridge until ready to use. The oranges will give up some of their liquid that will mix with the honey and vanilla to create a syrup.

For the Grilled Cheese:

  1. Spread a small amount of butter on one side of each slice of bread. Turn the bread butter-side-down on a cutting board and build your grilled cheese sandwich by placing two ounces each of double cream brie on half of the slices of bread.
  2. Onto each of the other half of the slices, place 1/4 of the bar of chocolate. Bring the two sides together to form the sandwich. (The order starting at the top is butter, bread, cheese, chocolate, bread, butter.)
  3. Plug in your waffle maker and set the slider to medium. Allow the appliance to preheat; the green light will illuminate when it’s ready. Place each sandwich onto 1/4 of the waffle grid. Pull the lid down. Depending on the thickness of your bread, the lid probably won’t close all the way. That’s fine! Just give it a little gentle pressure and then let the sandwiches cook for 4 minutes.
  4. The green indicator light will let you know when they’re ready. Lift the lid and remove the grilled cheeses using a spatula. Allow them to cool for 2 minutes.
  5. Cut them in half and top of each with a few Vanilla & Honey Orange segments and a drizzle of the syrup that’s collected at the bottom of the jar.
