Butter Olive Oil

This broiled grapefruit recipe is a wonderful starter for a holiday breakfast meal. Both sweet and tart, the grapefruit is pretty to look at and tasty.


  • 2 pink or red grapefruit, halved crosswise
  • 1/4 cup dark rum
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter Olive Oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne
  • 4 maraschino cherries, stemmed


  • Turn on the broiler in your oven.
  • Trim the ends of the grapefruit so they sit flat. Place on a baking sheet cut side up.
  • Run a knife around the edges and between the segments of the grapefruit.
  • Brush 1 Tablespoon of the rum over each half grapefruit. Combine the Butter Olive Oil with the light brown sugar to make a paste and spread the paste over each of the grapefruit halves. Dust with cinnamon and cayenne.
  • Place a cherry in the center of each grapefruit and broil the grapefruit until bubbly and slightly caramelized (about 5-6 minutes). Rotate pan if necessary.
  • Serve immediately.
