Bruschetta with Fruit???

A little over a week ago I had a nice brunch for my Mom's Birthday along with several family members. I was looking for a new recipe with fruit in it to use as an I did a little online recipe searching. I came across this recipe on All Recipes for Sweet Summer Fruit Bruschetta. It sounded so delicious....I just had to give it a try!! Since the brunch I have had sereral phone calls from family members requesting I email them the recipe. It was very easy to make...and from the feedback from my family, hubby and I were not the only ones to fall in love with the recipe!! So in case you too are looking for a great addition to your summer brunch, or even an afternoon snack for the family....give it a try!! Trust me you will be asked for this recipe again and again!!

Sweet Summer Fruit Bruschetta


24 1/4-inch baguette slices
1/4 cup butter, softened
6 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped peaches and/or nectarines
1/2 cup chopped plums
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons chopped glazed walnuts

Lay the baguette slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Stir together the butter, 4 tablespoons brown sugar and cinnamon and spread on one side of each baguette slice. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes or until bubbly and bread is lightly browned on the edges. Stir together the remaining brown sugar, fruit and lime juice in a small bowl. Spoon equal amounts over the bread slices and sprinkle with walnuts.

*I added a bit more fruit to my recipe....I used 1 cup of each fruit!!
