Guacamole Bruschetta

posted on: Thursday, September 30

We're having a small office party on friday and I volunteered to make some delicious guacamole. {See below for my go-to recipe.} I plan on making enough so that I can also make guacamole bruschetta. Such a great idea! I'll find any excuse to include guacamole in a dish. Side note—these little bruschettas would make for perfect apps for a football party. Enjoy!

1 loaf French bread
3 avocados - peeled, pitted, and mashed
1 lime, juiced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup diced onion
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 pinch ground cayenne pepper (optional)

Preheat the oven to 400ยบ.
Slice the French bread on the diagonal into ½- inch 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 2 Tablespoons of the mixture onto the garlic toasts and serve.
