Swap out boring grapefruit segments for grilled versions. Grilling naturally caramelizes and brings out the sugars in the fruit.
Oil heated on the grill gives the fruit extra flavor. The possibilities for experimentation are endless, but fruits that retain their shape well, such as apples and pears, are best suited. They don’t turn to mush when grilled.
You can do even more – grilling some meat like cured ham, which tastes great with lots of fruit, especially watermelon, will definitely make breakfast more casual.

- 4 slices of cured ham, cut into thirds and rolled into cylinders;
