A lovely breakfast or brunch option, try it with crispy streaky bacon!

Recipe By: Green Eyed Girl (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/326)
Serves 2 Prep: 2 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Pepino melon 1
Icing sugar 2 tsp
Honey 2 tbsp

Method

1
This is a pepino melon. It's a South American fruit that tastes a bit like a cucumber mixed with nashi pear.
2
Heat the grill pan until it's very hot.
3
Cut the pepino melon in half lengthways and scoop out the seeds. Pat the cut surfaces dry with kitchen paper.
4
Carefully sprinkle a teaspoon of icing sugar around the top rim of each melon half.
5
Place the melon sugar side down onto the hot grill. Be careful, as it will bubble a little as the sugar caramelises.
6
Keep on the grill for 4 minutes - you want to get attractive lines on the surface so don't move it even though you might be tempted to!
7
Using a palette knife, carefully lift the melon and turn 90 degrees clockwise to achieve a nice criss cross pattern. Keep in the same position for another 4 minutes without moving it.
8
Remove from the grill onto a serving dish and fill the hollow with the runny honey.

Tips & Note

if you don't have a grill, you can use a frying pan but you won't get the distinctive pattern. I used Gale's Original Clear Honey, they also do a Lemon Curd that I might try next time. You could fill with maple syrup if you like, or even with a scoop of ice cream for a dessert!
