Guacamole Bruschetta

Yield: 12-15 servings Prep Time: 15 min Cook Time: 6 min


  • 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


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Slice the French bread on the diagonal into ½" rounds and place on a baking sheet.
  3. Toast the sliced bread in the oven for 3 minutes, then flip each piece over and toast an additional 3 minutes.
  4. 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).
  5. Brush the tops of the garlic-rubbed toasts with olive oil and set aside.
  6. 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.
  7. Spoon a portion of the mixture onto each of the garlic toasts and serve.
