Directions

  1. Preheat your oven's broiler.
  2. Cut the grapefruits in half, and use a small serrated knife to cut out the sections in the halves. Spoon the sections and juice into a bowl, then scrape out all of the remaining thick skins and pulp. Spoon the sections from the bowl back into the halves. This is best done one half at a time.
  3. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over the top of each grapefruit half, adjusting as you see fit. Dot with butter. Place the halves on a cookie sheet.
  4. Broil for 3 to 5 minutes, until the butter is melted and sugar is starting to turn brown.

I just cut the grapefruit in half and put the toppings on (that is what the original recipe calls for) because I find it easier to scoop out the flesh when it is warm and softer.

Simple and delicious! I usually just eat these things cold with a bit of Splenda, but this was really nice change. I just cut the grapefruit in half, cut it into sections and loosed it - didn't bother with anything else. I used Land O Lakes light butter and added a little nutmeg along with the cinnamon. Very easy and very good!

Again, my laziness prevails and I just loosen the sections with a knife but don't bother to remove the sections and all that. I also skipped the butter - although Smart Balance or other non-hydrogenated spreads will work. I just didn't feel that butter and grapefruit belonged together. I used brown sugar and a little cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves, and that made these smell and taste wonderful! Reminded me of something served at a nice bed & breakfast in Maine.
