Grapefruit Brulee

Broiled Grapefruit

I'm back! I just returned from a long weekend in Grand Junction where my husband competed in his first mountain bike race of the season. Were still waiting to hear his placement. Apparently, people are slackers down there and wait 3 days to post results. Anyway, I have a pretty busy schedule today so I need a quick and easy breakfast. Enter Grapefruit Brulee. I saw this last week over at Seagrass Interiors and knew I had to make it.

I have had "broiled grapefruit" before during one of my stays at the Brown Palace in Denver. I loved the tangy citrus warm and sweetened by a sugar coating on top. This version has cinnamon on it. Even better! Happy Tuesday!

Grapefruit Brulee

Brown sugar
White sugar

Cut grapefruit in half. Slice a small piece off the bottom so the fruit will sit flat. With a serrated knife, cut around the fruit sections for easy eating. Sprinkle a mixture of brown sugar, regular sugar, and a little bit of cinnamon on top of the grapefruit (do this step right before putting into the oven. If you do it too far in advance, the mixture gets too juicy and doesn't broil very well). Place grapefruits in a glass pan and set under the broiler for about 5-8 minutes or until just brown. Serve and enjoy!
