Deciding on the menu for breakfast is troublesome. But with The Anatomy of a Dish by Diana Forley and Catherine Young, you can dish out some exciting new breakfast with ease. Here is one easy and simple recipe to step up your breakfast appetite.


  1. 1

    Combine sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg on a plate or in a shallow bowl. Pour the melted butter into another shallow bowl. Dip the bread slices in the butter, then coat them on both sides with the sugar and spice mix and arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Reserve the remaining spice mixture

  2. 2Bake the bread until the first side begins to crisp, about 20 minutes, then flip and bake for about 10 minutes longer. Remove the bread from the oven and preheat the broiler.

  3. 3Place the grapefruit segments in a small baking dish, sprinkle with the reserved spice mixture and broil just until they are warmed through, about 3 minutes.

  4. 4To serve: Cut each slice of bread into 4 strips. Arrange 6 strips of cinnamon toast and 3 or 4 grapefruit segments on each plate and serve.
