Caramelized Grapefruit

During the colder months of the year a big bowl of oatmeal with maple syrup and bruleed grapefruit are two of my favorite indulgences for breakfast. Warming the citrus helps mellow out the tartness and with just a little sprinkle of brown sugar you’ll think you are eating dessert.

Preheat the broiler then simply cut the grapefruit in half and sprinkle with brown sugar. Once the oven is hot, place grapefruit under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until nice and bubbly.

Serve warm with a little sprig of mint.

  2. I had a bruleed grapefruit at the Pere Marquette Hotel in New Orleans recently. I was surprised at how wonderful it tasted and how simple it is to prepare. Instead of brown sugar, they used sugar in the raw. The sugar was melted at such a high temp that the grapefruit was still cold when served. When I made it at home, the grapefruit came out half warm and half cold –which was even better. I never knew how sweet and tasty warm grapefruit was!
