Grapefruit can be quite tart, but once it is broiled and caramelized to perfection with a pinch of brown sugar, it makes a fabulous dessert!

Everyone gets the urge to cheat once in a while, so instead of going for a fattening slice of pie, this low-fat treat is a much healthier indulgence. If you’re going to cheat, this is the way to do it! Plus your kitchen will smell amazing!

I had a special guest photographer shoot my juicy grapefruit photo today! Jessica at Cardelucci, Inc. stopped by for a sweet treat and donated her photography skills to today’s post! Thanks, Jess!

Broiled Grapefruit
Serves 1-2

1 grapefruit
1 tsp butter (optional)
1 Tbsp brown sugar

Arrange the oven rack to the highest shelf, closest to the heat (grapefruit will sit about 2 inches from the heat). Turn the oven to “broil” setting. Cut grapefruit in half and place in an oven-safe pan. Divide the butter and spread along the top of each piece. Then divide and sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over each half. Place in the oven and broil for 3-5 minutes, or until the brown sugar melts and edges begin to brown. Remove the grapefruit from the oven to cool and enjoy warm.
