Grapefruit Brulee with Goat Cheese Frozen Yogurt

Yes, we are still working on the citrus we received from Florida! It has been a challenge to my creativity, because I usually just eat the oranges and grapefruit we have on hand, I rarely cook with them.

We grill fruit quite often in the summer, and serve it with ice cream. These Florida grapefruit had a nice sweetness, so brulee seemed like it might work, and since we have the cool brulee torch, why not ? And I had goat cheese that needed to be used up, so why not make my old favorite stand by, goat cheese honey frozen yogurt ? Is this a holiday dish ? I suppose since citrus is in season this time of year, it must be !

I have to thank my husband, Ray, for the prep work on this and the next several posts. I am laid up with foot surgery, so while I dream up recipes, he has to be the sous chef !
