Broiled Grapefruit with Caramelized Sugar

Broiled Grapefruit with Caramelized Sugar

I would never have thought to broil grapefruit until I saw it on Maria’s site, Two Peas, and Their Pod.  It looked really simple to make and so delicious.  I happened to have a grapefruit lying around so I made this for my husband and me last weekend.  I loved the “crust” of sugar caramelized on top of the grapefruit and thought that broiling it made it even sweeter and juicier than plain grapefruit.  I was worried I wouldn’t like the fruit warm, but I actually really enjoyed it.  If you want an extra caramelized crust of sugar on top, sprinkle a very heavy layer of white or brown sugar on each half.  I was trying to keep it fairly healthy so I only sprinkled on a bit.  If you haven’t tried broiling grapefruit – give it a go!  Thanks, Maria!

  1. Just so you k ow, your website did not update itself until today for me! I’ve been checking everyday. Hopefully all problems are fixed now!

  2. What a great idea! I love broiled/roasted anything, and I can imagine this would really bring out the natural sugars in the grapefruit!
