Sweet Broiled Grapefruit


  • 1 large grapefruit, sliced in half
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • Maraschino cherries, optional


Cut membrane out of the center of each grapefruit half. Cut around each section so it will be easy to spoon out when eating. Place 1 Tbsp. butter in the center of each half. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over each. Broil until butter is melted and sugar is bubbly. Garnish with a cherry, if desired. Serve immediately. 2 servings

Another delicious way to prepare grapefruit is to cut in half, drizzle with honey and put under the broiler for about 3-4 mins.

My father made broiled grapefruit, but he cored the center out and filled the cavity with brown sugar. That's yummy too.
