Grapefruit Brulee Recipe
To brulee the top, you can broil in your oven. Or, if you have a Culinary Blow Torch, you can use it and feel like a professional chef.
If you want, you can ‘dress up’ your Grapefruit Brulee Recipe by adding whipped cream, pecans (or any nut), cardamon, or cinnamon. Maybe, you want to add all! This would make a really tasty and somewhat healthier, than a giant piece of chocolate cake, dessert.
If you want to go decadent with Brulee try my Key Lime Cheesecake Creme Brulee Recipe, Dark Chocolate Creme Brulee, (Click the photo below for the recipes.) or Sweet Potato Cream Brulee.

- 2 grapefruit chilled
- 4 tablespoons brown sugar can also use granulated white sugar
Half grapefruit crosswise and place grapefruit half cut-side down on a paper towel for 5 minutes.
Invert grapefruit and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar evenly over exposed flesh of each grapefruit half. Using a culinary torch, heat sugar until melted and beginning to turn dark amber.
Alternately, if you don't have a culinary torch, preheat broiler to 450. Transfer grapefruit, cut side up, to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Broil grapefruit until the sugar is melted and beginning to turn dark amber, about 8 minutes. Watch closely to prevent burning. Let grapefruit cool before serving.
