Ingredients

  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • pinch of nutmeg, ginger, or cardamom
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • pinch of salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to low broil setting and line a baking pan with parchment paper or foil.
  • Cut grapefruit in half through the middle and place in pan. To make it easier to eat, you may want to cut around each section in the grapefruit using a serrated knife (I use grapefruit spoons instead).
  • Pour half of the vanilla onto the cut side of one of the grapefruit and the rest onto the other half. Use your finger or a spoon to spread.
  • Divide sugar between the two halves, sprinkling evenly. Top each grapefruit half with a very small pinch of nutmeg (or ginger or cardamom), cinnamon, and salt.
  • Place in preheated oven and cook for 8-12 minutes until the top is caramelized. If your oven does not have a low broil setting, the grapefruit will be done much faster so keep an eye on it. Eat right away.

Notes

Inspired by Cookie and Kate's Broiled Grapefruit with Honey, Yogurt, and Granola recipe and Elise Bower's Broiled Grapefruit recipe on Simply Recipes.
