Broiled Grapefruit


When I first heard of Broiled Grapefruit I thought “Are you nuts?” But since I am adventurous when it comes to food I went to the store and purchased a bunch of different grapefruits and decided to give them a try.



4 Grapefruit
1 Tbs Ground Cinnamon
1 Tbs White Sugar
4 tsp Butter

The first thing you will need to do is pre-heat your broiler. (I put mine on low)

The next step is to cut your grapefruit in half. Use a small knife to cut along each triangle section. Remove sections discarding all thick skin and pulp. Place the sections into a bowl.

After the sections are cut out and the think skin is removed you will need to dish the cut sections back into the grapefruit halves.

Sprinkle Cinnamon and Sugar over each half and place pad of butter on half as well.

Place on cookie sheet and Broil 3-5 minutes or until butter is melted.
