    Never liked grapefruit (too bitter) but this recipe is fabulous! I tried it w/honey on 1 side of my half, and blueberry jam on the other. Both were tasty, but the jam was sweeter so I liked that better. I also topped w/sliced strawberries and grapes (which were particularly good). Thanks, Chef Meg! - 3/4/12

    Please be mindful of any prescription medications that might react with grapefruit or grapefruit juice. I love grapefruit but can't eat it now because I take a cholesterol medication, generic for Lipitor. Read labels on your medications! - 3/28/13

    My first experience with weight loss was at 17. My Aunt and I joined Weightwatchers to lose extra lbs. Second visit, I woke one morning to warmed grapefruit, honey and pistachios.

    Back in the '70's when I was in Weight Watchers, we had a recipe for broiled grapefruit, much like this, but without the nuts, and broiled for a couple of minutes instead of baked. - 2/6/12

    I learned to like grapefruit after I learned to peel it and take the sections out rather than try to scoop out after it's cut in half. I found that leaving all the pith and peel behind made the grapefruit sweeter in the bowl... Now I'm going to do this and drop a few drops of stevia on it.. - 3/28/13

    This really brought out the best in grapefruit, though I love it fresh too! I didn't have any pistachios, so I used pine nuts instead. :) Thanks for the great recipe! - 2/9/12

    If baking makes grapefruit sweeter, why do you need to add honey? Or, if honey makes the grapefruit sweeter, why bother to bake it? Actually, ripe grapefruit doesn't need a sweetener at all. - 3/28/13

    Yes! This is the kind of recipe that I would expect to see on site like SparkPeople. Healthy, clean and simple. The honey could be optional. The pistachios add the protein. Maybe a few more pistachios on top if you ditch the added sugar. Also, agave might be a better choice for sweetener. - 3/28/13

  • I am not a grapefruit fan but I do eat it occasionally. This sounds really good and I have it in the oven now, smells good too! I used chopped walnuts since I don't have pistachios. Ok, its done so I will see if it is as good as it smells. Ok, it was delish!!! I really like this recipe, its a keeper - 3/28/13
