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.

Oma's Grilled Grapefruit

Ingredients:

  • 2 grapefruits
  • about 2 Tbsp butter
  • about 2 Tbsp granulated sugar (preferably coarse)

Instructions:

  • Preheat grill or broiler
  • Cut grapefruits in half. Using a grapefruit knife, release the fruit from the rind as much as possible without breaking through the rind.
  • Put pieces of butter on top of each half and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Grill or broil until sugar is melted and top is nicely browned, about 10 minutes. 
  • Serve immediately.
  • Serves 4.

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.

Oma says,

This appears to have been a 'fad' recipe from years ago. I must admit that I've not seen this on restaurant menus for years or shown online ... perhaps it's time to bring it back!

Thinking of starting your own Handmade Business?

Oma Gerhild Fulson

This Oma KNOWS you CAN do it.

How do I know?

Well, if I can do it, anyone can.

I've even figured out how I can help you.

I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.

Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.

Thinking of starting a handmade business. I've got a FREE workshop from my coach right here.

PS:  Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.

PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales, and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look ... and a whole bunch to gain.
