“Sweeten up your morning with this nifty way to prepare grapefruit! This is the only way my Mother could convince me to eat my grapefruit and I still eat it this way.” - by LAURA_G123
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- Preheat your oven's broiler.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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...." See more"
"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..." See more 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-hydrogena..." See moreted 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."
