Most people think I’m pretty strange when I tell them I cook grapefruit. But the truth is, this is absolutely the best way to eat it. I had this once at a B&B in Taos, NM and I’ve made it like this ever since. The combination of heat and brown sugar makes for a sweet, juicy treat. No sour faces. And it works well with any kind of grapefruit. This is the perfect addition to any breakfast or brunch, and not bad for a yummy snack either.
This hardly qualifies as a recipe since there are only two ingredients, but that doesn’t make it any less delicious. Make it today.
Brown sugar (about a teaspoon for each grapefruit half)
Preheat broiler. Slice a bit off each end of the grapefruit so there is a little flat spot for it to sit on so it won’t roll around. Cut grapefruit in half and set the halves in a baking dish. Sprinkle the top of each half with a teaspoon or so of brown sugar.
Broil for about 3-5 minutes, until edges begin to brown and the brown sugar has melted over the top. Remove from oven and eat.
