1/1 Photo of Grapefruit Brulee
Although this is listed as a dessert in Sunset Magazine (February 2008) I like it better for breakfast. I heat it up in the microwave for one minute or so and top with the yogurt -- yummy low cal/low point breakfast. I figure this is 4 points (if following the WW flex plan), using regular brown sugar, but I used Spenda brown sugar blend which worked out fine. However, the Spenda dosen't seem to melt as easily under the broiler, but melted just fine in the micowave for breakfast.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1With a sharp knife cut off both ends of the grapefruit (I used large red grapefruit).
- 2Set grapefruit on flat end on a cutting board and cut away and discard peel and membranes. Section grapefruit, discarding membrane.
- 3Preheat broiler (see my notes in the description).
- 4Arrange grapefruit in single serving ovenproof dishes (such as individual gratin dishes).
- 5Sprinkle with brown sugar or the splenda.
- 6Broil until sugar melts and darkens (5 minutes).
- 7Serve warm with yogurt.
- 8***When I made these I had two for dessert as in the directions above. But the remaining two I put in the fridge and reheated for breakfast in the microwave for a minute or so and then topped with the nonfat plain greek style yogurt. In the microwave the spenda gets syruppy and mixes well with the grapefruit and yogurt. As greek style yogurt (I bought mine at Trader Joe's) isn't always easy to buy, I think next time I will use plain nonfat yogurt instead.
