Original Recipe

Spiced Honey-Broiled Grapefruit Recipe


  1. 1 grapefruit
    2 teaspoons honey
    Pinch of nutmeg
    Pinch of cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to the "broil" setting.
  2. Slice the grapefruit in half width-wise, then use your knife to loosen the fruit sections from the surrounding peel. (This will make it easier to spoon out the fruit after baking.)
  3. Drizzle each half with 1 teaspoon of honey, being especially generous toward the center of the fruit. (For a sweeter fruit, feel free to use more honey or add brown sugar on top of the usual sweetener. This is especially good for holiday brunches or decadent dessert grapefruits.)
  4. Sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon atop the honeyed grapefruit halves, then place on a lined baking sheet.
  5. Broil for 5 minutes. You can allow the grapefruits to bake for a few minutes longer if you desire a well-done, golden-brown appearance.
