I know, right? Broiled grapefruit? This is amazing. I got the inspiration from the latest issue of Eating Well. I adjusted a few ingredients, and voilà, deliciousness ensued.

Broiled Ruby Red Grapefruit

1-2 grapefruits, halved, with the bottoms sliced so they sit flat on your baking sheet

2 tsp butter, melted

Cinnamon and coconut sugar, mixed

1/2 cup heavy cream

2 tsp honey

2 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat broiler and adjusted baking rack so it is about 3″ from the heating element. Line a baking sheet with foil for easy clean up, and set grapefruit halves on the sheet. Using a paring knife or grapefruit knife, cut along the sections of the fruit so they are easy to scoop out with a spoon. Bathe the surface of the fruit sections in butter, then sprinkle with cinnamon and coconut sugar.

Broil fruits for 7-10 minutes, until brown and bubbly on top.

While fruits are baking, combine heavy cream, honey, and vanilla extract, then whip until stiff peaks form.

Remove fruits from oven and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes. Top with whipped cream and serve.
