Guacamole Bruschetta

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.

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


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.

    I made this as an appetiser and it was absolutely amazing. My boyfriend and I ended up eating the left overs for brekky the next day (he added and egg – DELICIOUS). Will be using this recipe for the rest of my life for when friends come over for dinner!! And it was so cheap and everything very easy to get too! :)

    I just made this tonight since we had a half a loaf of bread left from last night’s dinner. We loved it so much that we put the rest of the mix on our burgers. DELISH! Thanks for the recipe.

  1. […] emerged….thankfully!  The menu had to be bump friendly, so I replaced soft cheeses with guacamole bruschetta and seafood with spicy cold chicken salad served in mini Chinese takeout containers.  With my […]

  2. […] Anyway, we still had the potluck, only indoors. I asked my boyfriend what I should bring, and he suggested guacamole bruschetta. I thought, “Perfect!” To save time, I decided not to serve it with toasted french bread. Instead, we ate it with chips, so I guess what I ended up making was guacamole salsa. I adapted a recipe from Just a Taste (I cannot wait to try her crispy chicken wings). You can read the original recipe on her blog. […]
