While browsing through some Weight Watchers Appetizer Recipes the other day, I came across a traditional bruschetta recipe that looked pretty good. I gave it a try and was not impressed. Bland and boring. But in a desperate attempt to justify eating more bread, I wasn’t ready to give up on the idea of a good Italian Brushetta Recipe. My spin on this popular appetizer recipe adds a TON of flavor and texture while still keeping it Weight Watchers friendly. Each nicely sized serving has just a 2 Points. But be forewarned….it was SO INCREDIBLY YUMMY it was almost impossible to stop myself from eating the entire 12 slices. Seriously. I could totally do it. If you need a delicious appetizer recipe that will be enjoyed by weight watchers and non-weight watchers alike, you must give this one a try!
Goat Cheese and Bruschetta Appetizer Recipe
– 1 loaf French baguette bread, sliced into 12 even slices
– 6 Roma tomatoes, finely diced
– 4 medium garlic cloves, minced
– ¼ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
– 6oz package of goat cheese, room temp
– 1 tsp olive oil
– salt and pepper to taste
PS. I’m a garlic fanatic, and even though this recipe is my mild version, if it still has too much garlic for you, feel free to cut some out :)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place bread slices on baking sheet, and then lightly spray the bread slices with the nonstick cooking spray. Bake until lightly browned, flipping once, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine tomatoes, garlic, basil, olive oil and salt and pepper in a bowl. Evenly divide the goat cheese among all the bread slices and spread the cheese onto each slice. Top with tomato bruschetta mixture evenly onto bread slices. Serve immediately.
