I got this recipe several years ago from a cookbook called The Treasury of Favorite Brand Name Recipes. We have it often as a side dish when I serve our favorite spicy Caribbean dish, because the succulent citrus rounds nicley complement the savory spice blends featured in that Caribbean dish. I think it would also be great with other spicy cuisines as well....perhaps as a side dish to accompany a zesty Italian dish or a spicy Mexican entree. It's very simple to prepare, and it uses only 4 common ingredients. I hope you like it.
- Preheat oven to 400°.
- Peel both oranges and the grapefruit; discard the peels. Slice all the cirtus fruits into thin rounds (about 1/4" thick). Place the citrus rounds on an ungreased baking sheet, overlapping the edges just a bit.
- In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon and stir until thoroughly blended. Place about a teaspoon of the sugar mixture on the top of each citrus round. Using the back of the spoon, spread the sugar mixture evenly over the top of the citrus rounds.
- Bake in the oven (at 400°) for about for 5 or 7 minutes, or until the fruit slices are heated through.
- Serve immediately, while the fruit slices are still warm.
A sweet and colorful way to start the day. Made as written. We fond this to be a nice change of pace. Thanks for the post.
I made this for breakfast this morning, using a mix of oranges and ruby red grapefruits. I love both oranges and grapefruits, and really thought I'd love this. But I felt the brown sugar and cinnamon overwhelmed the yummy citrus flavors. Made for Gimme 5 Tag game.
SIMPLE, SIMPLE, & TASTY, TASTY! We really enjoyed this as a breakfast side, but I look forward to having this as a great addition to a more formal dinner ~ Something most guest wouldn't expect! Very much a keeper of a recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
