By sectioning broiled grapefruit and adding a bit of thick yogurt, it becomes a fancy dessert. Prep and Cook Time: 20 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

With a sharp knife, cut both ends off grapefruit. Set grapefruit on end on a flat surface and, following the shape of the fruit, cut away and discard peel. Cut sections out from the fruit, leaving the membrane behind.

Step 2

Preheat broiler. Arrange grapefruit sections in 4 shallow ovenproof dishes (such as individual gratin dishes). Sprinkle with brown sugar. Broil until sugar melts and darkens, about 5 minutes (watch carefully). Serve warm, with dollops of yogurt.

Step 3

Just made this for the first time using my cooking torch and creme fraiche instread of yogurt. Loved it, fresh with a touch of creaminess.

This recipe is ok, I guess if you are a real grapefruit lover it would be great. If I make it again, I will try adding some spices. Maybe nutmeg or cinnamon.

This recipe was fantastic! I adjusted the recipe by using Splenda brown sugar. It had a rich flavor and was delicious treat. I will definetly be making this again.

I just made this at the end of my Christmas brunch and what a delight! It was lovely sweet top-off to a nice veggie egg omelet. A light tart taste with a hint of dessert. My only issue was that I didn't have a sharp enough knife to make the grapefruit slices pretty like the picture so I cut them out in wedges with the outside membrane in tact and they still turned out fine! (But with maybe a more hands on approach in order to eat.)

Wonderful light dessert that is richly satisfying! I'm always looking for ways to use the grapefruit off my tree and have struck gold with Grapefruit Brulee! I didn't have individual broiler-safe dishes so I sliced the grapefruit into 1 inch slices and place on foiled line pan to broil. After broiling drizzled little brandy over each slice before topping with yogurt. Be sure to use Greek Yogurt (I use Fage), which is a world apart from Dannon or Yoplait or any of the other brands.
