Baked Grapefruit

So - I found these monstrous grapefruits... and HAD to have them.

I got them home and went "Ok, Genius - what are you going to DO with them??" I went on-line to find some interesting ideas... and this is the first one I found that sounded interesting to me...

Baked Grapefruit

Other than grapefruit, you need honey and cinnamon...

DIRECTIONS:
1. Cut each grapefruit in half. With a sharp knife, cut around each section
to loosen fruit. Place cut side up in a baking pan.
2. Drizzle each half with 1 teaspoon honey; sprinkle with cinnamon. Broil
4 in. from heat for 2-3 minutes or until bubbly. Serve warm.

In the end, we figured that smaller grapefruits in this case might yield better results...
