3 Things To Do With A Broiled Grapefruit

As prepared by Gimme Some Oven,

Crank up the heat, broiled grapefruit is where it’s at!


I grew up in a family that loved grapefruit.  Make that – LOVED grapefruit.  Every winter our church would host a fruit sale, and we would order boxes upon boxes of fresh grapefruit. Once our shipment arrived, I would come down to breakfast every morning to find half a grapefruit sitting on the table for me, already sectioned by my dad.  (I know, I hardly appreciated it at the time. Now I know that made grapefruit all the better!)

As an adult, my grapefruit love has continued.  But one of my favorite ways to prepare it now is super quick and delicious – broiled!

It literally could not be easier.  Just sprinkle your grapefruit halves with a pinch of sugar, pop them under the broiler until they are warm and the sugar begins to caramelize, and then a delicious treat is yours to enjoy.

Broiled grapefruit is fabulous plain, but I also really enjoy it:

3. Garnishing a delicious grapefruit salad


 

Here’s how to get started by broiling your grapefruit:

 

Ripe grapefruit

Start with a ripe grapefruit or two.

 

Grapefruit cut in half

Cut them in half, and then sprinkle a pinch of sugar across the top of each half.

 

Broiled grapefruit

Pop them under the broiler on low for about 5-10 minutes, or until the tops begin to burst and the edges turn slightly golden.  Keep a close eye on these while baking.  The edges can burn quickly!
