While fresh citrus is often serve cold, I find warm broiled grapefruit to be an irresistible treat on a cold winter day!

You may be wondering “why on earth would you ever cook a grapefruit?” The answer is simple: it’s delicious! The heat from the broiler caramelizes the natural sugars in the fruit leaving you with a breakfast or snack that tastes as sweet as candy!

Dolloped with yogurt and finished with a sprinkling of granola and berries, this quick and colorful dish will make you think twice about how you serve your citrus!
