Original recipe yields 2 grapefruit halves



  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source.
  2. Remove all visible seeds from the grapefruit and loosen sections from membrane with a sharp knife. Place grapefruit halves cut side up in a baking dish.
  3. Stir the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt together in a small bowl; add the butter and mash with a fork to incorporate oat mixture into the butter. Spread about half of the butter mixture over the top of each grapefruit half.
  4. Cook under the broiler until the topping is golden brown, about 10 minutes.

I only made one substitution--I used Splenda brown sugar blend instead of regular brown sugar. Holy frijoles, this is brilliant. The best breakfast I've had in a LONG time.



Simple and delicious! I love apple crisp so why not a grapfruit crisp? Well, I wasn't disappointed. I usually just eat these things cold with a bit of Splenda, but this was really nice change. I used light butter and added a little nutmeg along with the cinnamon. As with anything you but in a broiler you have to watch it carefully so it doesn't burn. Everyone's oven is differnent, so use the 10 minutes as a guide - it may take less time than that.



All righty then. This is great, but for all of you BURNING the grapefruit, try this. Put it in the microwave oven. It works ever soo well, and in under 2 minutes. The crispness is STILL there. I do it this way in the Summer, soo as not to have to turn on the Broiler, as well, I do it this way for a dessert as well. Cheers NV
