Orange à la Norvegienne

Orange à la Norvegienne is a French dessert, reminiscent of a Baked Alaska.

It is made of oranges stuffed with ice cream.

You chill the oranges till they are very cold. Meanwhile, you make a meringue from egg whites and sugar.

You cut open the oranges around the tops and scoop out all the pulp, till you have just the shell left as a container, which you fill with ice cream, and top with the meringue.

Then, you pop them under a heated broiler (aka grill in the UK) for 2 to 3 minutes or until the meringue is crispy, and serve straight away.

You can use a kitchen torch to brown the meringue instead of the broiler.

Some people like to leave a bit of the pulp in,

Language Notes

Named after Norway because the dish is served cold and the meringue is remiscent of snow.

    What's this, Tortilla Chip Day? What do you do, eat a Tortilla Chip? Whoever eats "a", as in just one, tortilla chip? If you're really hardcore and energetic about it all, you can make your own, but most of us will just buy a bag. You'll want to invest at least in a jar of salsa to go with them.
