Bruschetta and Dips

This lunch/starter serves four people. The dips and bruschetta topping can be made and stored in the fridge until ready to serve.

It goes really well with the cheese scones (in the centre of the photo).

The bruschetta and dips are just 1 point each, per serving, on No Count and 4 points if tracking.

  6. Cook the bread in a preheated oven (180C) for five minutes.
  7. Cut the garlic clove in half and rub on the bread.
  8. Add the topping and serve.

 

You can have 4 olives free on WW or 14 for 1 point.

The cheese scones go great with the bruschetta and dips.  View the recipe at: www.lovingnocount.com/cheese-scones/
