Brown Sugar Broiled Grapefruit


I tried a new dessert last night - brown sugar broiled grapefruit ala Joy the Baker. Always a citrus fan, grapefruit is a rotating staple of my breakfast routine. And when indulging in this tart fruit, I almost always add that sprinkle of sugar to sweeten it up. But I'd never even considered that one could bake or broil a grapefruit. The broiling works to caramelize the sugar to really infuse the flesh. Wowza, this definitely improves the flavor, and warm sugar-infused grapefruit is always quite tasty! Who knew?

I had a friend whose mom served this at Thanksgiving! It was the perfect dessert after such a heavy meal!

I haven't eaten it since, but I do have 4 ripe grapefruits sitting in my kitchen... I think I know what I'll do with them! YUM!

Thanks for the reminder!
