Stop What You're Doing and Broil a Grapefruit

Saw this recipe for broiled grapefruit on Pinterest and was intrigued - grapefruit is something I've tried hard to like but can't quite past the pucker and tartness.  (My new find, the pummelo, a larger but milder version of the grapefruit, has already vanished from the citrus section.  To everything there is a season and, alas, the pummelo's but a brief winter one).

Hello, sugar and butter.  So long, doubts.

So delicious, y'all - Luke and I agreed it was so good we were surprised we had not heard of it before, at home or at breakfast-brunch places.

Halve grapefruit and run a serrated knife around the edge and between segments.

Melt 1 tablespoon of butter, add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and some cinnamon.  Spread mixture over the grapefruit halves and broil with the oven rack on the highest placement for 4-6 minutes.

This plus the six-minute soft-boiled egg tutorial in the March Rachael Ray (on toast that takes 6 minutes in the toaster oven) = quick scrumptious brunch.

[Soft boiled eggs: let eggs sit on counter for at least 30 minutes prior to cooking.  Add eggs to plenty of boiling water; let boil for 6 minutes, less for smaller eggs.  Remove eggs with a slotted spoon and plunge into a bowl of ice water.  Peel and enjoy!]

Oh, eggs!  Like little packets of cheese sauce... yum.
