~ My Oh So Tasty Grapefruit ~

My Mom used to treat us with grapefruit made this way, only I add the addition of cinnamon butter. A delicious way to enjoy a grapefruit.

I use light butter and Splenda brown sugar to cut down on fat and calories. Just as good!

I don't just make these for breakfast. I make them anytime I'm craving grapefruit.
