I think I should be embarrassed to post this, but when I served this for breakfast this morning, Ole Sweet-Pi said he had never in his life seen a broiled grapefruit. At first I thought he was kidding, because this is something that we'd have on rare occasion when I was growing up, but when he sincerely insisted he had never seen this, I thought, naturally, photo-op!
There's not really a recipe for this. Just a how to.
Preheat your broiler. Cut one ripe grapefruit in half (for 2 servings). Using the point of a sharp knife, gently cut completely around the grapefruit between the fruit and the rind, and then cut between the fruit and the membrane that separates the sections of the grapefruit. Sprinkle the top with a couple teaspoons of brown sugar. Place in a baking dish and broil about five minutes or so. Place a maraschino cherry in the center and serve while warm.
