Olive Cheese Bread aka YUM!!!

Seriously, delicious!

This is one of those recipes that after you try it, it will become part of your recipe go to's for family dinning and entertaining it is that good, considering you like olives, cheese, butter and a few other ingredients.  

This is also one of those recipes where we did not get in there and add or change anything. You know the ones that you want to keep true to taste and not loose anything in the translation.
We first tried this recipe at our nieces birthday party and when we heard it was from the Pioneer Woman, well, we just knew it would be great. And it was, and it is and it will be again!

This bread may look like pizza bread, however it is not.
Worth repeating is the fact that we did not alter this recipe. We understand cooks like to experiment here and their. We hope you will try it the way it was written first, and than if you are just itching to adjust it somehow, do it than. But at least taste it the original way.

         Recipe for Olive Cheese Bread
                from: Ree Drummond The Pioneer Woman

One 14.5-ounce can black olives, drained
One 6-ounce jar pimiento-stuffed green olives, drained
2 stalks green onions
1 stick butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup mayonnaise
12 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1 loaf crusty French bread, sliced lengthwise

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Roughly chop both the black olives and pimiento-stuffed green olives. Slice the green onions into thin pieces.
Combine the butter, mayonnaise, cheese, olives and green onions in a mixing bowl. Stir together until thoroughly combined.
Spread the mixture onto the French bread. Bake until the cheese is melted and browning, 20 to 25 minutes.
Cook's Note: The mixture can also be refrigerated (up to 2 days) and used as a dip. Great with crackers!

This recipe yields enough spread that you could use 2  loafs of French bread instead of just one as the recipe calls for. But we kept the entire recipe as is and enjoyed every bit of it!

Once you smell it in the oven baking you already know you are in for a treat! Than when you take just one bite, you are hooked. It really is hard to stop eating. While this is not one of our more healthy recipes, sometimes you just gotta live it up some. And who's to say that you couldn't swap out the gluten French bread for gluten free French bread?! Use a vegan cheese, butter and mayo to boot!

This could almost be a meal in it's self. Make a nice green salad, a glass of wine, share the meal with family and friends, wonderful.

We hope we have made you hungry enough that you are going to give this a try. Seriously, delicious. Be inspired. Get creative!

By humility and the fear of the Lord
Are riches and honor and life.
Proverbs 22:4
