Really great breakfast dish...or for a snack. I think that it would even be appropriate as a dessert for a light meal. Recipe was originally printed in Better Homes and Gardens magazine.

This was good and different for us. I followed the recipe other then I used 2 tablespoons of Splenda brown sugar blend instead of brown sugar.

This was so good! I melted the brown sugar and butter together and drizzled over the fruit before broiling. I loved the grapefruit, my husband loved the pineapple best.

this was really good and so simple. I did add a little cinnamon. I think that you could even do this in a saute pan on top of the stove. I love the way lightly heated fruit has a flavor that just "pops".......so sweet and flavorful.
