2 Tbsp Honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Position an oven rack about 4 inches below the broiler and heat the broiler on high.
- With a serrated knife, cut the grapefruit in even halves. Using a small paring knife or a grapefruit knife, cut each section away from the surrounding membrane. Remove the seeds and cut out the tough white center. Leave the grapefruit in the rind. Set the grapefruit halves in a shallow broiler-safe pan (such as an enameled baking dish or a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet). If necessary, trim a thin slice off their bottoms so they sit level.
- In a small bowl, stir together the honey and the vanilla extract. Drizzle the honey mixture over the grapefruit halves. At this point, if you desire, you could dust each grapefruit half with any of these desired spices; cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cardamom or ginger. For an added sweetness you could also sprinkle with brown sugar.
- Broil until bubbling and lightly browned in spots, 4 to 10 minutes. Keep an eye on it as it cooks, you could also rotate the pan as the grapefruit browns. They will be done when the edges begin to bubble and turn brown. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
You could also garnish your grapefruits before you serve them with any of the following; Plain or Greek Yogurt dusted with cinnamon, Mint sprigs, Strawberries or Cherries.
This is not only a great breakfast but can also be served as a light dessert. Have fun with the many ways this fruit can be served warm, many people who claim to not like grapefruit love to eat it this way, I love grapefruit and the taste of it , I often eat it plain and cold. Since I love grapefruit plain, I broil my grapefruit with the least amount of sugar, that is why I only drizzled mine with raw honey and vanilla. My favorite grapefruits to eat personally are Texas Red’s, they are so delicious!
