Guacamole Bruschetta Posted by Kelly / 33 comments » / appetizers, healthy options, simple sides As a California girl at heart, I will find any excuse to enjoy homemade guacamole. This time I’ve put a spin on my traditional guac by serving it up as the centerpiece in this simply delicious bruschetta recipe. And how can you go wrong with this arsenal of flavor-packed ingredients? The crunchy French bread serves as the perfect host to the avocado mixture, which is overflowing with fresh lime juice, tomatoes and chopped cilantro. Print Guacamole Bruschetta Yield: 12-15 servingsPrep Time: 15 minCook Time: 6 min Ingredients: ½ loaf French bread 1 clove garlic 2 Tablespoons olive oil 2 tomatoes, medium chopped 2 avocados, medium chopped 1/3 cup finely chopped onion ¼ cup chopped cilantro 2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice ½ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon pepper Directions: 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.
