Grilled Honey and Rosemary Grapefruits

This morning’s breakfast recipe is for Grilled Honey and Rosemary Grapefruits, topped with a sprinkling of granola. You might be wondering why I would choose to grill grapefruits, but if you are a grapefruit lover, bear with me. 😁

Grapefruit, when grilled with something sweet, like honey, caramelizes and complements the fruits bittersweet flavour. By adding a few sprigs of rosemary, which has a very ‘woodsy’ scent, the grapefruit also gets a delicious toasty flavour.

We currently have quite a bit of grapefruit at home, (due to overlapping shopping excursions) which is why I decided to create Grilled Honey & Rosemary Grapefruits.

Winter is for Citrus

If you did not know, I really don’t like winter and in fact, the only reason I look forward to it at all is because of citrus.

There is something about Citrus that just makes me happy.

So, cooking and baking with Grapefruits and Oranges is one of the only things that get me through these dreary months – and this Grilled Grapefruit could brighten any wintery day.

I turned this into a more substantial meal by adding a sprinkling of granola, but you can also add a dollop of yoghurt if you’d like.

The most important part of the recipe is the sectioning of the grapefruit (running a knife along the rind as well as through the segments)

By sectioning the grapefruit the honey, rosemary and cinnamon mixture that you make beforehand can drip down to the bottom of the fruit.

It also makes it much easier to eat the grapefruits when they are cooked.
