Broiled Grapefruit With Brown Sugar RecipeServe these sweet grapefruits to guests as breakfast or brunch "dessert".
2 large red grapefruits, at room temperature
8 tsp dark rum
2 tbsp brown sugar, packed
2 tbsp unsalted butter, cut into small bits
2 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp allspice
1/8 tsp salt
Step 1: Place an oven rack on the upper third position in your oven. Preheat broiler to high.
Step 2: Halve each grapefruit, then loosen the segments by cutting along the membranes with a paring knife. Drizzle 2 tsp of rum over each half.
Step 3: In a small bowl, combine the sugar, butter, flour, allspice and salt. With your fingertips, pinch the ingredients together until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle crumbs evenly over the grapefruits halves.
Step 4: Place grapefruits on a broiler pan or shallow baking dish and broil until crumbs are lightly browned and bubbling, about 7 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.
