Broiled Breakfast Grapefruit
1 packed tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg (optional)
Cut grapefruit in half crosswise.
With a small, sharp knife pointing downwards, separate the segments of each half, keeping the fruit in the skin. Then run the knife in a circle around the edge of the skin. (The skin will act as a "bowl" for the separated grapefruit sections.)
Turn on oven and set to Broil.
Mix brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl. Sprinkle mixture on the grapefruit halves. Place grapefruit, spiced-side up, on a cookie sheet. Place in top rack of over and broil for 5 minutes or until the grapefruit surface is bubbling or golden brown. Serve hot.
Makes 2 servings.
