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.


  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake in the oven (at 400°) for about for 5 or 7 minutes, or until the fruit slices are heated through.
  5. Serve immediately, while the fruit slices are still warm.

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.
