Broiled Cinnamon Ginger Grapefruit

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 and 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
dollop of vanilla Greek yogurt (optional)

broiled Grapefriut Recipe Hip2Save


Cut a grapefruit in half and slice both ends just a little so each half will lay flat on a baking sheet. Mix brown sugar, cinnamon and ginger and sprinkle on top of grapefruit. Broil for about 4-6 minutes in the oven until brown. Watch carefully to make sure they do not burn. Top with Greek yogurt if desired. (Serves two)

I love how warm and sweet this makes an ordinary grapefruit and I love that it’s super easy!  What’s your favorite way to eat grapefruit?

    Yummy! This sounds delicious. I’m definitely going to try this. Thanks, Lina!

    Sounds yummy BUT the 1.5 Tablespoon of sugar is too much unless your planning this to be a dessert. I’ll broil mine without or a dusting which might be 1/4 teaspoon of brown sugar. Careful with the sugar folks!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Sure, just use as an idea and i think honey would be awesome too!

    • jlgclassof2000

      Really cuz for me i was thinking i might need to do 3 tbsp cuZ i really dont care for grapefruit cuz of how bitter it is. With enough sugar though…maybe it will no longer be the only fruit i dont like =)

    When I was a kid, my Dad would section the grapefruit for everyone and put a maraschino cherry in the middle with some juice on the top. I still do that to this day. Makes me think of him every time 🙂

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yum. 🙂

  4. Katie

    My mom likes to eat it cold with regular sugar sprinkled on top. I on the other hand can not stand this stuff:)

    Off topic but do you have any good sweet potato recipes? I bought a huge box of them and now don’t know what to do other then bake it! And it’s too sweet for my family to eat lol.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      My family likes just simple sweet potato fries and all i do is cut fresh sweet potatoes lengthwise, mix with a little olive oil, and sprinkle with cajun seasoning and maybe a little salt and pepper. Then bake until tender or desired crispness. Yum!

      sweet potato souffle!! (sp?) Not the stuff with marshmellows! Basically, it tastes like pumpkin pie on the bottom with crunchy, brown sugar topping. Definitely a dessert! Also, if you’re from the south ;), Sweet Potato Pie. (Pretty much the same as pumpkin pie)

    • Brenda

      I peel it cut it in cubes. Marinade them in olive oil with cinnamon and then put it on a oven tray. 30 min on 400 and you have a great side dish.

    • B bitter

      Bake them and then use them like pumpkin in bread or muffin recipes

    I have done something similar before with an orange. It’s delicious! I used honey and cinnamon but I love the idea of putting ginger! Thanks for sharing, Lina 🙂

  7. Catie

    Love the idea of an orange too! I have lots of grapefruit and oranges to eat!! Yummy!

  8. adriana

    My son and I love these. But the way we sometimes eat them is to put ground cinnamon and walnuts on them. No sugar or other junk, then bake for a little =)

  9. Ruthie

    For years, I have sprinkled very little sugar or Splenda (for the diabetic members of the family) and broiled—-great. I have also used honey. I love the idea of ginger and cinnamon so will be trying this very soon. THANKS SO MUCH FOR A NEW IDEA.

    I had this (or something very similar) at a Bobby Flay restaurant in NYC. I think it was about $6! Very good and easy to make at home. Impressive brunch treat.

  11. Meredith

    I was so excited to try this, but holy moly it’s waaaay too much cinnamon! Is that a typo? My son and I had to scrape most of the topping off just to make this edible.

    • Kris

      I also made this and had a similar experience – so I checked the recipe that this was adapted from and you can see there is a big difference in the measurements.

      Measurements from the original recipe from which this was adapted:
      2 TBSP lightly packed light brown muscovado sugar
      1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
      1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
      1 large pink grapefruit, halved and segmented

      Apologizing! Fixed & I need new glasses, sorry.

    This looks so good! I am trying to be a little healthier so I may try your honey idea, Lina. Or maybe maple syrup. Also on the sweet potatoes, I saw on biggest loser where your put anything you put on a regular baked potato on a sweet potato. I tried it with greek yogurt(sour cream), a few scallions, salt, pepper,a little cheese and it really was good! Seems like it wouldn’t work but somehow it did.

    I was the guest of a family friend for a week when I was in college. She prepared for me a broiled grapefruit with crushed & melted peppermint candy on top. I had never had such a thing before (or since), and your blog post brought back some nice memories! It was quite yummy.
