Grapefruit Brulée

Grapefruit Brulée

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.
