Grilled Watermelon with Honey Glazed Mandarin

I love breakfast ideas, but by the time we get moving on a weekend it is most definitely brunch.

But this works perfectly for a lazy day when it feels like Spring is in the air.

There are so many textures in this dish, which stops the watermelon from tasting wet and sloppy!

I can't believe I have never thought to grill a watermelon until now.

Grilled Watermelon


  • Sliced watermelon 
  • Peeled mandarin
  • 2 Tablespoons of honey
  • Handful muesli of your choice
  • 1 small pot of yoghurt to serve
Watermelon brunch

Using a griddle (if you want the seared lines across the slices) or shallow frying pan, brush your watermelon slices and mandarin segments with honey and cook on a medium/high heat for 8 minutes on each side.

The honey will caramelise slightly and the natural water in the watermelon stops it from sticking.

Take off the heat and layer up your watermelon. Sprinkle with muesli and mandarin and top with a dollop of yoghurt.

The boys loved their "fruit pizza" slices. Easy to make for just 4 of you or for a big group.

Lazy brunches are most certainly the way forward! I used my cabbage leaf plates in these photographs and it reminded me of our beautiful breakfast in Honfleur.

Bon appétit! 

psst how do you like my new bone vintage cutlery? A little bargain I picked up in an antique store opposite Spitalfields Market in London when I was working last week. I got 3 sets of knives and forks for £12, they are so heavy and just feel full of history. They are from America and apparently from the days of cowboys!
