Grapefruit Brulee

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Feeding my Family

Growing up I never would eat heated cereal. My mother would make me toasted grapefruit with cinnamon and sugar so I would have a warm meal in my belly before leaving for school. I hadn't thought about that in years until I came across a similar recipe in Susie Fishbein's Kosher by Design Lightens Up.

different! I like pink grapfruit fresh and "naked" so I wasn't sure about messing with it. I used homemade Recipe #131664 and left off the additional cinnamon. Used Nectresse sweetner. I wasn't sure how brown to let it get so pulled it when it was just barely starting to brown. The fruit was still cold at the bottom, even the half that rested in the oven. It was tasty and the flavors all complimented well. Not sure if I will keep trying it since I still love the fresh taste of cold grapfruit. Made for PAC Spring Safari 2013

  1. Preheat the broiler to high with the rack 6 inched below the element.
  2. Slice the grapefruit in half.
  3. Loosen the segments with a knife or grapefruit spoon. Discard the seeds.
  4. Pat the top of each half with a paper towel to absorb some of the juice.
  5. Spread half of the preserves on each half of the grapefruit.
  6. Sprinkle the cinnamon and stevia on top.
  7. Place the grapefruits on a jelly-roll pan and place under the broiler for 3 minutes. Watch it carefully so that it doesn't burn.
