    ellie_'s Note:

    Although this is listed as a dessert in Sunset Magazine (February 2008) I like it better for breakfast. I heat it up in the microwave for one minute or so and top with the yogurt -- yummy low cal/low point breakfast. I figure this is 4 points (if following the WW flex plan), using regular brown sugar, but I used Spenda brown sugar blend which worked out fine. However, the Spenda dosen't seem to melt as easily under the broiler, but melted just fine in the micowave for breakfast.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      With a sharp knife cut off both ends of the grapefruit (I used large red grapefruit).
    2. 2
      Set grapefruit on flat end on a cutting board and cut away and discard peel and membranes. Section grapefruit, discarding membrane.
    3. 3
      Preheat broiler (see my notes in the description).
    4. 4
      Arrange grapefruit in single serving ovenproof dishes (such as individual gratin dishes).
    5. 5
      Sprinkle with brown sugar or the splenda.
    6. 6
      Broil until sugar melts and darkens (5 minutes).
    7. 7
      Serve warm with yogurt.
    8. 8
      ***When I made these I had two for dessert as in the directions above. But the remaining two I put in the fridge and reheated for breakfast in the microwave for a minute or so and then topped with the nonfat plain greek style yogurt. In the microwave the spenda gets syruppy and mixes well with the grapefruit and yogurt. As greek style yogurt (I bought mine at Trader Joe's) isn't always easy to buy, I think next time I will use plain nonfat yogurt instead.

      3 Stars. This is an unusual combination. My dilemma is that I really like grapefruit with just a little sugar and plain yogurt with just a little sugar, or broiled grapefruit with brown sugar and brandy (forget the yogurt). This recipe's combination did not improve upon any of those combinations for me. The Greek yogurt was very creamy so I liked it as a substitute for whipped cream. Made for Newest Zaar Tag *08A.
