The first course of our 3-course breakfast at our Bed and Breakfast Inn is a fruit dish, am always on the hunt for ways to prepare and cook fresh fruit, especially in the winter. Being in Colorado we are hard pressed to find good fruit in the winter, and it’s nice to have a warm hot dish on a cold snowy morning.
Generally speaking I am not a grapefruit fan, but grapefruit like this I love! I have also been able to make grapefruit believers out of many of my guests as well when I serve this grapefruit. The key is to use TEXAS RUBY RED grapefruit, not the yellow Florida or California grapefruits. They ruby red grapefruits are much sweeter than the tart yellow ones. It makes all the difference in the world. And it’s so easy you make this dish, you can make it from start to finish in less than 10 minutes.
Here’s the recipe, enjoy (even if you’re not a grapefruit fan, you WILL enjoy grapefruit prepared like this)!
BROILED GRAPEFRUIT WITH BROWN SUGAR AND CINNAMON
1 Texas Ruby Red Grapefruit
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Slice grapefruit in half and place on aluminum foil lined cookie
sheet. Using a grapefruit knife, cut each segment, and around edge,
being careful not to cut through the skin.
Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over grapefruit
halves. Broil about 4″ from heating element for 2-3 minutes, or until
topping is hot and bubbly. Place in serving bowls and serve at once.
