The only way to eat a grapefruit

In my opinion grapefruit (or is it grapefruits?) are the unsung heroes of the citrus family.  They get a bad rap for being sour and hard to eat.  And they are.  Unless you make them like this:
1. Cut grapefruit in half.
2. Sprinkle the top with cinnamon and sugar, don't be skimpy now.
3. Put it on a pan with a decent lip on it (so the juices don't run all over your oven - totally learned that the hard way).
4. Broil until the sugars caramelize and kind of melt into the fruit.
5. Use a sharp knife to cut into sections and slice off the peal (it seems to come off a lot easier when it is warm like this).

Good morning, Lover.

I have never tried this.
Don't know if I could.
If it promised me a little tiny body like yours maybe I could, though!

Sounds like a great idea. By the way, whose Dr. Brown's bottle is on the table? Is this an old pic? Ha.

Was this a pinterest discovery? Looks so good.

Sara, that is Simon's bottle - ha! And Gena, my mom made this for us growing up. And it totally should be a pinterest thing.

That looks amazing :) I have done sugar on a cold grapefruit before, but never with cinnamon and broiled! I'll have to try it.
