directions

  • Heat oven to 350 deg F/180 deg Celsius.
  • Slice baguette on the diagonal (you'll get more slices than you need, but bake them all and save the rest in an airtight container for later use).
  • Brush with olive oil or butter, and bake in single layer until golden and quite crisp.
  • Meanwhile, peel and cut avocado's in small cubes in a bowl, add the onion, lime juice, chopped hot pepper (remove seeds!), basil and olive oil.
  • Season with salt, and toss lightly.
  • Remove 9 crisp golden bread slices to a serving platter, and place a spoonful of the avo relish on each.
  • NOTE: Be careful with the chilli pepper or paste: you don't want it too hot. Use less if pepper is very hot.

    Very nice, Zurie. This is a very refreshing appetizer. I just threw these together last night as a snack for myself (I was not hungry for dinner, but I still wanted something to munch on). Instead of making my own crustini I used pre-packaged ones along with garlic bagel chips. Everything else I did the same way, and it was great. Thanks!! :)

    the avo bruschetta was a hit. this recipe doubles as some fantastic guacamole. the basil adds a unique flavor that i hadn't thought of for my guac. very good.
