Broiled Grapefruit with Brown Sugar

Last time I was visiting home, my younger sister Kendra made me an amazing breakfast treat: broiled grapefruit with brown sugar. Something I never would have thought to do, but it was so delicious! It was an especially nice way to enjoy fruit in the winter time. The sugar caramelizes a bit and the grapefruit gets super juicy. It’s magical. I wanted to share her special treat with you. It is very easy to make, and once you try it you’ll be hooked. Thanks k-bear!

1 large grapefruit
1 teaspoon unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat the broiler. Cut the grapefruit in half and with a sharp knife cut the sections. In a small bowl mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Spread the mixture evenly across the top of the grapefruit. Place under broiler for about 3 minutes until the sugar is bubbling. Dig in!
