Guacamole crostini is a go-to for summer entertaining in the Arizona home of Michelle Ezratty Murphy, one of our favorite homecooks. ”We just love guacamole in my house,” she says. ”And because guacamole is pretty straight-forward, I like to dress it up with one or two ingredients like pomegranate seeds (usually mixed in for holidays or special celebrations) or toasted pepitas for a nutty flavor. They can really take guac to the next level.”
Michelle loves to go into her kitchen and shake up traditional family-favorite Latino dishes. ”For this recipe, I kept the guacamole itself simple and then paired it with a sweet caramelized onion and bacon jam, served on lightly toasted baguette slices. In each bite, you get the fresh citrusy flavor from the guacamole, a hint of smokiness from the bacon, the sweetness of the caramelized onion, and a light crunch from the toasted bread.”
”These guacamole crostinis with onion and bacon jam are perfect as an appetizer or a light lunch. They were a hit with my family. I hope your family loves them too!”
