Two Peas and Their Pod

Guacamole Bruschetta

On Sunday I posted 46 Super Bowl Recipes to help get you ready for the big game. If you need one more tasty appetizer to serve at your Super Bowl party, make this Guacamole Bruschetta. I am obsessed with guacamole. I even added it to Grilled Cheese. That Guacamole Grilled Cheese is the best sandwich in the history of sandwich making and this Guacamole Bruschetta is the best bruschetta that will ever enter your mouth.

I am all about simple appetizers when hosting a party. I would rather visit with our guests and enjoy the party than stress about the food. This Guacamole Bruschetta is perfect party food because it is super simple to make and everyone loves it. All you have to do is toast baguette slices, whip up some guacamole, and top the baguettes slices with the guacamole. I told you it was simple:)

I like to make the guacamole chunky so you get a big piece of creamy avocado in every bite. The lime juice keeps the avocados from browning, so the bruschetta is pretty to serve. And if you can’t wait until the Super Bowl to make this Guacamole Bruschetta, I don’t blame you. It makes a great snack, lunch, or even breakfast:) Go get your guacamole on and make this easy Guacamole Bruschetta!

And a quick shout out to my dad-it’s his birthday! Happy Birthday Pops! We love you!

  16. Shawna @ CheekyChicFamily — February 1, 2012 @ 9:54 am

    I follow too many food blogs (if that’s possible) but you are all making it very difficult to lock down my “Big Game” party menu. (Did you know you’re not allowed to use the Big Game’s actual name anymore….it’s copyrighted ).

  17. Brian @ A Thought For Food — February 1, 2012 @ 9:57 am

    What a fabulous dish to serve for a Super Bowl party! Love the bright flavors here!

  19. Mimi Avocado — February 1, 2012 @ 10:09 am

    I know some avocado farmers who could easily make a meal of these! Makes a nice break from chips and guacamole! So pretty too!

  20. Carrie @ Kiss My Whisk — February 1, 2012 @ 10:39 am

  25. Ben — February 1, 2012 @ 12:42 pm

    Beautiful and delicious!

  26. Krissy's Creations — February 1, 2012 @ 12:54 pm

    I love *anything* with Avocado. I MUST try this!

  27. Lisa [With Style and Grace] — February 1, 2012 @ 1:07 pm

    This NEEDS to happen, in my kitchen, right now.

  28. Amy's Cooking Adventures — February 1, 2012 @ 1:15 pm

    Looks delicious–guac is always a winner!

  29. Melissa @ Bless This Mess — February 1, 2012 @ 3:59 pm

    Must have now! I am totally obsessed with bruschetta and we eat it as a meal on warm summer nights when my tomatoes are red and plump. I can’t even remember what warmth feels like right now… any who. This will be a great way to not buy too many store tomatoes and still have my bruschetta! Hurray for avocados!

  30. honeywhatscooking — February 1, 2012 @ 4:43 pm

    that looks so good. when i saw it, i was like obviously, but why didn’t I think of it. :-) Gorgeous pics.

  31. Deborah — February 1, 2012 @ 4:46 pm

    I think we need to start calling you the avocado queen instead of the cookie queen!! And happy birthday to your dad!

    • Two Peas replied: — February 1st, 2012 @ 8:21 pm

      I have been crazy about avocados lately:)

  32. Cookin' Canuck — February 1, 2012 @ 5:35 pm

    We can never get enough guacamole and this is a fun way to highlight those flavors in a different way. Go Giants!

  33. marla — February 1, 2012 @ 6:05 pm

    Heavenly!! I would love this for dinner. Like many, many pieces of this. Love guac on everything!

  34. Cassie — February 1, 2012 @ 6:15 pm

    This is fabulous. So perfect for game day. Couldn’t love the idea more!

  35. Urban Wife — February 1, 2012 @ 7:03 pm

    I could live off guacamole!

  36. RisaG — February 1, 2012 @ 7:24 pm

    This looks so good. Is there a way of giving us the nutritional breakdown too? Including sugar? I would love to know how many calories in a serving, how much fiber and sugar (if there is any) and what a serving size is. I am watching my calories, sugar and fiber. I have 4 avocados waiting for this weekend. I think I will make this and the Grilled Cheese!

    • Two Peas replied: — February 1st, 2012 @ 8:20 pm

      I don’t do nutritional information for our recipes. There are programs out there online that will figure it out for you.

  37. Living The Sweet Life — February 1, 2012 @ 8:12 pm

    Happy Birthday to your dad :) – – If its possible for bruchetta to be pretty , you’ve done just that. By just your pictures alone , I’m craving this fresh and delicious treat~ yumm!!

  38. Amanda — February 1, 2012 @ 8:23 pm

    Happy B-day to your dad! I love guacamole and it loods amazing paired with bruschetta! And the cilantro leaves in your guac look so pretty!

  39. Joanne — February 1, 2012 @ 8:25 pm

    I’m fully convinced that I, in all likelihood, would just sit at the table eating this out of the bowl. With a spoon. For three meals a day.

  40. Tracey — February 1, 2012 @ 9:03 pm

    I want to like avocados so much, but something about the texture just doesn’t work for me. I know plenty of people who’d love this though so maybe I need to make it for them! :)
