Grapefruit Brulee

I tried this recipe years ago by recommendation of a close friend. It didn’t sound very appealing, but I decided to try it anyways. Was I ever pleasantly surprised! Not only is it a healthy choice it is juicy, tangy, and very satisfying to those of us with a sweet tooth. Adding just a bit of brown sugar on top of the grapefruit and broiling it creates a crust or a “brulee” if you will….trust me, you will love it. It’s perfect for breakfast or a snack… especially for those of us who are participating in the “Reshaping It All Challenge“! Love to you, Janelle

    When I was little my Gran used to put a little brown sugar on my grapefruit after she warmed them. It was so good. Thanks for reminding me of this! It's a great memory. 🙂
