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.
1 large grapefruit, cut horizontally into two halves
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar equally over the two grapefruit halves; place under the broiler for 3-5 minutes, or until the sugar is lightly browned and caramelized.
