Grapefruit is typically a tart addition to your breakfasts and smoothies, but this broiled grapefruit method adds a little more sweetness and reduces the level of tartness so everyone can enjoy it.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 serving
  • Half a Grapefruit
  • Honey
  • Ground Ginger
  • 4-5 Banana Slices (optional)
Preparation Instructions
  1. Turn the oven up to Broil. Cut the grapefruit in half and use a grapefruit knife (or paring knife) to segment the grapefruit (separating the fruit from the membrane), making it easier to eat.
  2. Place the grapefruit cut-side up on a small baking sheet. Drizzle some honey over the top.
  3. Place 4-5 banana slices on the top of the grapefruit and flip them over so that each side is coated with honey.
  4. Lightly sprinkle ground ginger (or ground cinnamon would work too) over the grapefruit half.
  5. Broil for 4-6 minutes, watching the grapefruit so it doesn't burn. You want the honey to bubble a bit and the top of the grapefruit and bananas to brown just slightly. Be sure it doesn't burn.
  6. Serve the grapefruit right away and enjoy while it's still warm. Yum!
