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. Enjoy!
