This easy grilled grapefruit, aka Gegrillte Grapefruit, is one of the quick breakfast recipes that's great for company. It also works as an appetizer for a brunch buffet. How German is this? Not really sure, but there are many variations of this in most of my German cookbooks. Why? Because it's so easy and delicious.
Need a garnish? Add a maraschino cherry on top! Although commonly called grapefruit in German, this delicious fruit is also known as Pampelmuse.
Not only easy and delicious, but also nutritious! Full of vitamins and minerals and fiber, this is a great way to start the day or for an extra boost of energy any time. BUT, there is a caution! Make sure you loosed the fruit from the rind BEFORE you grill. Use a special grapefruit knife for this. It's very hard to do this once the grapefruit is grilled and hot.
If served as appetizers, use small grapefruits. One serving is half a grapefruit. If served for breakfast, make some scrambled eggs with bacon to go along side.
