I found several recipes with great reviews for baked grapefruit. Each recipe was a little different but all said baked grapefruit was a tasty warm breakfast - or dessert topper!
Each recipe said something different about how to cut the grapefruit. Some had you just cut them in half and make a cup similar to how many people eat it cold. Some had you peel it. I thought the peeled kind look prettiest so I went with that!
I cut off the top and bottom till I could see the flesh
Then I sliced off the sides.
There would still be some pith on the bottom so I'd turn it over and trim off those parts too.
I sliced the grapefruit into circles about 1 inch thick.
Here is where I got a little creative. Some recipes called for brown sugar, some honey, so I dressed each slice in a different way. I crushed up some pecans and sprinkled those on top of some. Half of my guests are allergic to nuts so I left a few slices without.
Here is a close up of a slice with brown sugar and pecans before baking.
This is the same slice after baking. I baked the slices until they were hot and juicy - about 15 minutes on 350, then just about 5 minutes on broil to get the nuts nice and roasted.
The slices were soft and falling apart when I scooped them off the pan into bowls.
We couldn't tell the different between the brown sugar and honey slices, so I think whichever you prefer will work just fine. After eating them we talked about how great this would be over something sweet-ish like vanilla ice cream, or vanilla yogurt. Eating them plain was a little boring. Another suggestion was oatmeal. Overall, it was tasty. I might do this again on a cold winter morning.
