Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

This easy-to-prepare dish lends eye-catching appeal to a winter breakfast or brunch. Brown sugar sweetens the tart fruit, and the sugared grapes add a pretty accent. —Vicki Holloway, Joelton, Tennessee


  • 5 medium pink grapefruit
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Seedless red and green grape clusters


  1. Cut each grapefruit in half horizontally. With a sharp knife, cut around each section to loosen fruit. Place grapefruit halves, cut side up, in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan.
  2. Combine brown sugar and 2 tablespoons sugar; sprinkle over grapefruit. Drizzle with butter. Broil 4 in. from the heat until sugar is bubbly.
  3. For garnish, rinse grape clusters and dip in remaining sugar. Place on grapefruit; serve warm.
