broiled grapefruit

I have a MAJOR sweet  tooth (like I can devour an entire package of Oreos no problem) so I am always trying to find creative and healthier ways to satisfy my sweet cravings .One of my favorites is broiled grapefruit. Broiling the grapefruit brings out the flavor and it so crazy DELICIOUS!


    Grapefruit- broiled alone it is yummy but you can also add toppings

    Additional toppings-
    honey
    a sprinkle of brown sugar
    a sprinkle of cinnamon
    granola
    my favorite- toasted coconut with a little bit of diced basil

    Start by preheating your boiler
    Slice your grapefruit in half
    Segment the grapefruit
    Sprinkle the sugar and/or honey on top
    Place grapefruit on a cookie sheet
    Cook for 5-7 minutes or until the sugar is caramelized 
    If you are using coconut or anything that cooks quickly, then add at the very end of broiling.
    Let the grapefruit cool and then enjoy!

My grandmother used to make these for me all the time when I was a little girl. She even had these cute little spoons that were serrated on one side to get the grapefruit out.

This sounds so yummy! I can't eat grapefruit, so I might try it with a nice big orange. Thank you for the idea :).

My husband told me that his dad did this when he was a boy. I have never heard of anyone else doing this until your post. I thought what a strange thing to do. I need to apologize to my hubby.

I have to admit that I am a little glad that my daughter and I are gluten intolerant. Makes it so much easier to resist the oreos and other sugary cookies and such that we crave.

This looks yummy!

mmmm... che buono! Lo proverò sicuramente!
Certo che il pacchetto di Oreo, però, è un'altra cosa...

Sure that the package of Oreo, however, is another thing...

That broiled grapefruit sure looks mouthwatering! I've never tried to broil fruit before, but from what I can see there, I'll definitely try that one out. That is definitely uber healthy! Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!
