Mint-Topped Broiled Oranges

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 8 mins
Yield Makes 2 servings
Cut a very thin slice off the bottom of each orange half to help steady the fruit on the baking sheet.


  • 1 large navel orange
  • 2 teaspoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon orange liqueur (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Cut orange in half crosswise. Run a sharp knife or grapefruit knife around each section to loosen from membrane. (Do not remove sections.)

  2. Stir together melted butter, chopped mint, and, if desired, orange liqueur. Spoon evenly over cut sides of orange halves. Place orange halves, cut side up, on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet.

  3. Broil 5 inches from heat 5 to 8 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
