Broiled Grapefruit

Growing up I always remember opening the refrigerator and seeing mommas grapefruit sprinkled with sugar all over the top waiting until morning so the sweetness could soak down for her breakfast. I always loved to share them with her.  In my family we always loved the bitterness of grapefruits. I grew up drinking unsweetened grapefruit juice and still do this day you will find it in my fridge and a bowl filled with plump pink and orange grapefruits on the counter. I just so happened to see this recipe floating around Pinterest and knew I had to try it, I am glad I did its delicious. However if you do this mixture overnight and sit them in the fridge it will taste just as great and cold.

1 grapefruit
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1. Pre-heat the ovens broiler. Carefully cut the grapefruit in half and then go around the edges and seams of wedges making grapefruit easier to remove.

2. In a small bowl add sugars and cinnamon, mix well and sprinkle all over top of grapefruits.

3. Place on a baking sheet and broil about 3 minutes until sugar starts to brown.

Yields: 1

    Do you know how many kilos I've had these past few months? Loads! I love them but sprinkled with salt. Dh was telling me they would make them this way for breakfast at his restaurant in GA.

    I have never tried them with salt. I have saw some mixed grapefruit drinks (virgin of course) and Popsicles made at home that look good I want to try.

    You all may not get these but I bet you all get wonderful fruit to replace it that we do not get. I know in South Asia they get the most amazing fruit many I never had heard of and they are so amazing.
