Broiled Grapefruit



What?? This is the typical response I get whenever I mention broiled grapefruit. But let me explain.This recipe is so simple that I don't really feel right calling it a recipe. All it is is cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on grapefruit and then caramelized under the broiler. This gives a nice light and sweet coating to the normally sour grapefruit.

My mother passed away when I was quite young, but I remember her making this for me. I have always liked grapefruit by itself, but having sugar and cinnamon sprinkled on top was always a treat. Especially when I got to have it for breakfast.
