Guacamole Bruschetta Recipe

guacamole_bruschetta_1
This is another type of bruschetta I made recently – Guacamole bruschetta. This is a combination of Italian and Mexican cuisine; toasted sliced French bread topped with delicious Guacamole. The garlic bread really makes this recipe great. The bread is rubbed with a clove of garlic and brushed with olive oil. This makes the perfect appetizer for parties or events. It also makes a good side dish for tacos, burritos or really any Mexican dish.  Enjoy.

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. Arrange bread slices on a baking sheet and bake in the oven on one side for 3 minutes. Flip and toast on the other side for 3 minutes. Remove toasted bread from the oven and rub with a clove of garlic (works best if you cut the clove in half or some off the top).Brush the tops of each bread slice with olive oil. Set aside.
