  • 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.

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 Read More

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. Read More

I was skeptical of this because I am not much for warm fruit. I couldn't stop thinking about this though once I read the recipe because I was curious as to how it tasted. Ingredient wise - I did not change a thing. I did follow others reviews and baked at 350 for 10 minutes. Final product: I LOVED it! This a great breakfast that can be made quickly. I saved 1/2 the grapefruit and oatmeal mixture for tomorrow's breakfast. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I enjoyed this even though I do not like grapefruit! If you are making for only one person you can easily refrigerate half the grapefruit and half the topping. Read More

I tried this on a whim this morning as I like oats and cinnamon and I adore grapefruit. I made it exactly how the recipe called for (except I omitted the salt) but only one half. Broiling it burnt the out of the topping so I took out the rest of the topping and the second half and tried it again baking it at 350 for 10 minutes. Came out nicely that time. It's interesting but I don't think I'd make it again. Something about the sweetness of the topping and the tartness of the fruit don't really go together all that well! Read More

This is a nice change from the ususal grapefruit for breakfast. It's so yummy and tastes just like a crisp! I have a very hot oven so when I broiled it it burnt the top in no time so I tried just baking it at 350 and worked perfect. Read More
