Brioche and Seville Orange Marmalade Toasts with Chocolate Dipping Sauce

Andy Bates

From Viva España with Jose Pizarro and John Whaite on the 'Big Eat' on Food Network UK...

The idea of this dish comes from my love of churros and a grilled cheese sandwich I once had from a food truck in Florida. The orange marmalade and cream cheese work so well with the chocolate dipping sauce. Serve as an indulgent breakfast, dessert or even better as a late night snack.

My Brioche and Seville Orange Marmalade Toasts with Chocolate Dipping Sauce



In the kitchen with Jose Pizarro!

In the kitchen with Jose Pizarro!

  • Brioche loaf
  • Seville orange marmalade
  • Cream cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Butter for frying
  • Icing sugar for dusting

For the Dipping Sauce:

  • 150g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons golden syrup

For the Caramelised Oranges:

  • 2 oranges, with the skin cut off and sliced
  • Caster sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons orange liqueur



Slice the brioche loaf and spread on a layer of marmalade on one slice and cream cheese on the other and then bring them together with the filling in the middle.


Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat them. Dip the brioche sandwich into the egg mix to coat well.

Melt the butter in a frying pan. Add the brioche and fry on one side for 1-2 minutes until golden. Flip it over and cook it on the other side.

Remove it from the pan and slice it into halves.

For the caramelised oranges, make a dry caramel in a frying pan with the sugar by simply putting it on the heat until it melts.

Then add the slices of orange and caramelise on both sides. Add some orange liqueur to deglaze the pan and remove.

For the dipping sauce, gently melt the chocolate over a saucepan of simmering water, then stir through the golden syrup.

Dust the brioche with icing sugar and serve.
