Baking a whole brie isn't exactly a new idea, and if you were looking for something more traditional, then check out my baked brie. And I've also made low carb brie en croute – which is SO decadent!

The idea of using a waffle iron for cheese in general was inspired by a post I saw on Pinterest, but the recipe was low on details and the comments weren't very positive! After some research I came across this post on Lifehacker, where the author covers which cheese will work and which won't. When she discusses brie, I *love* this tip:

For rind cheeses such as brie, it’s important to pick something that stays fairly firm at room temperature (so, not one of those French guys that weeps dramatically and completely loses his composure the moment you remove him from the fridge).

I decided to serve the cheese with toasted pecans and sugar free honey. Check out my full article on low carb honey substitutes – or you can make your own zero carb honey!

Low Carb Honey

And if you saw my recipe the other day for making “hot honey” – then that would go SO well with this recipe too!

How to Make Waffle Iron “Baked” Brie

Toast the pecans in a dry skillet until fragrant, stirring regularly.

If making the honey spicy, combine it with some hot sauce and heat it in the microwave until it starts to bubble.

Place a whole Brie in to the center of a preheated waffle iron.

Close the lid, and hold it down firmly to cook the cheese on both sides. After a minute or two, rotate the brie around 180 degrees – this helps to ensure even cooking.

When the cheese starts to leak, remove the brie from the waffle iron and place it onto a serving board. Drizzle the honey over the top, and scatter the pecans over the cheese.

I like to serve it with cucumber slices!

Here's another great quote from Claire at Lifehacker:

Waffled brie is similar to baked brie, except that waffled brie has convenient little waffled dimples for honey to pool in, which is a pretty major improvement.

Oh and if you're worried about clean-up, I'd recommend wiping up any spills with paper towels while the waffle maker is still hot. Otherwise you can let it cool and then lift it out off the waffle grids.
