Grapefruit halves are as traditional for breakfast as corn flakes and just as boring. Here are a few ways to perk up this standby. Try not to fight with your spouse over the breakfast table to see who gets which one.
1 grapefruit halved and sectioned
1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or other orange liqueur
2 teaspoon minced candied ginger
1 tablespoon rum
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1)Preheat broiler. If necessary, cut a small slice from the bottom of each grapefruit half to make sure it sits evenly.
2)Put halves in oven-proof dishes. Mix Grand Marnier with ginger in a small bowl and spoon over one of the grapefruit halves. Mix rum and brown sugar in another small bowl and spoon over the other half.
Sam’s Cooking Tip: There are a number of other combinations you can try such as bourbon and maple syrup.
