Sweet Broiled Grapefruit Recipe

I was never a fan of grapefruit until I had it broiled at a Florida restaurant—it was so tangy and delicious! I finally got the recipe and now make it often for husband Ron, myself and our children and grandchildren. —Terry Bray, Auburndale, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Maraschino cherry for garnish, optional


  • 1. Cut each grapefruit in half. With a sharp knife, cut around the membrane in the center of each half and discard. Cut around each section to loosen fruit.
