Guacamole Bruschetta


This bruschetta is like none other I have ever had before. Take your basic bruschetta recipe and marry it with your guacamole recipe and this deliciousness is what you would get. Onion, cilantro, fresh lime juice, tomato and fresh avocado in every mouthful. Not to mention the slightest hint of garlic in each bite, but it is not by any means overpowering like some guacamole or bruschetta can be. Trust me. Make it. This is heavenly.

You Will Need:
  • 1/2 loaf French bread
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes, medium chopped
  • 2 avocados, medium chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Here We Go:
  • Preheat the oven to 400ºF
  • Slice the French bread on the diagonal into ½" rounds and place on a baking sheet
  • Toast the sliced bread in the oven for 3 minutes, then flip each piece over and toast an additional 3 minutes
  • Remove the toasted bread from the oven and immediately rub with the clove of garlic (it works best to first cut a small tip off the garlic clove so that the oils will seep out)
  • Brush the tops of the garlic-rubbed toasts with olive oil and set aside
  • In a large bowl, combine the chopped tomatoes, avocado, onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper
  • Mix together gently making sure the avocado is well coated in the lime juice
  • Spoon a portion of the mixture onto each of the garlic toasts and serve

Makes 12-15 Bruschetta
Happy Feasting!
