Ever eat broiled grapefruit and wonder how it's made? We'll show you how – plus a little secret to make it extra special!
Broiled grapefruit is a huge trend among bloggers and a nice twist on everyone's favorite breakfast treat.
But it’s kind of...boring.
I love grapefruit – especially the cool, refreshing qualities of it. When you add sugar and heat it up it loses a lot of those.
I still wanted to get on board with this trend though, so I decided to try and make it more interesting. And what do you do when you want to make something more interesting? Just add booze!
Now this dish is transformed from a sad breakfast to a super healthy and light dessert, or even a fun brunch side!
This is an optional step, but some grapefruits need a little help standing up straight. I only had to do this to one end of the fruit, the other was fine.
A few holes help the booze get absorbed. You also want to flip the grapefruit half over and lightly drain a little juice to make room. Don't get rid of it, though – just drink it!
Pour in some peach liqueur.
Then top with sugar.
Broil for 3-5 minutes until the sugar has hardened a little and you see some browning. Watch carefully so you don't burn it – this part goes fast.
It’s that easy! The sugar and the subtle peach flavor add a whole different dimension to this fruit.
