Broiled Grapefruit

I love grapefruit and this time of year they are delicious. I was introduced to this way of eating grapefruit by one of my best friends when we were in high school. I didn't really like grapefruit at all, but this converted me. (I like it without sugar now too).
This is really simple to make too!

Broiled Grapefruit
serves 2
1 grapefruit (I prefer pink over yellow)
2 Tbsp brown sugar

1. Cut grapefruit in half, remove seeds if visible.
2. Sprinkle each half with 1 Tbsp (give or take depending on your preference)
3. Place under preheated broiler for 1-3 minutes or until sugar has dissolved and started to caramelize (I could have gone a little longer). Eat!

Oh man! Thanks for reminding me about this delicious snack. I might just have to pick some up this week.

Also, I made your Cuban Braised Beef last Sunday and everyone LOVED it! That will be a regular over here from now on. Thanks!

My daughter and I both love grapefruit, though I haven't yet enjoyed it without a little Splenda on top. We have three more grapefruits sitting in the fridge and will give this a shot for sure!
