Frozen yogurt makes the perfect topping for the warm, fruity dessert.
Brulée means "burnt" and is most associated with the hard cooked, broiled sugar coating on top of the rich, creamy egg custard-like dish that adopted its name. In this case, it's fresh grapefruit segments that get treated to the broiler—a method that brings the natural sugars forward.
- 3 large red grapefruits (such as Texas Rio Stars), peeled and sectioned
- 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon grated or ground nutmeg
- Preheat broiler.
- Place grapefruit sections in a broiler-safe 13 x 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with sugar; dot with butter. Sprinkle spices over top.
- Broil until bubbling and beginning to brown at the edges, about 5 minutes. Cool 2 minutes. To serve, gently transfer sections to bowls with a metal spatula; scoop up juice in pan and drizzle over sections.
