Mint-Topped Broiled Oranges
Recipe Submitted by the Maury Place at Monument

1 Large Navel Orange
2 teaspoon Melted Butter
1/2 teaspoon Chopped Fresh Mint
1 tablespoon Orange Liqueur (optional)


Cut a large navel orange in half crosswise and cut a thin slice off the
bottom of each half so it will sit steady on a foil covered baking sheet.
Then run a knife around each half to loosen the orange from the peel. Do not
remove the peel, however. Stir together 2 tsp melted butter and 1/2 tsp
chopped fresh mint. If desired, you may add 1 tbsp of orange liqueur. Spoon
the mixture evenly over the cut sides of the orange halves. Place the orange
halves, cut side up, on the foil lined baking sheet.

Broil five inches from heat for five to eight minutes or until thoroughly
