Olive love

I'm sharing my 'Olive love' with you today - and who doesn't LOVE olives ???  I like them all: green, black, kalamata....don't matter ! I'm thinking i must have some Greek & some Italian in me some where... :-)  I found this on Pinterest- my latest foodie obsession! Some of their recipes are unique and something different when you're in the 'cooking rut'. My finiky hubby would not 'love' this- so i fixed it last week for my Scrapbooking friends for our monthly 'crop'. I'm not sure how they felt about it (but-it was almost all eaten!), but I thought it was fab. All the cheesy olive-y goodness.

WARNING- this is so NOT a low calorie recipe ;-)

Cheesy Olive Bread:

here's what you need:
  *small can of sliced black olives
  *small jar of green olives w/pimentos
  *2 green onions
  *1 stick of butter -softened
  *1/2 cup mayo
  *1 pound Monterey Jack cheese- shredded
  * 1 loaf crusty French bread

and here's what you do:
 Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Dice up your green olives, black olives & green onions. In a large bowl- combine butter, mayo, cheese, olives & onions; stir until completely mixed. Slice bread lengthwise & spread the mixture on each half. Bake for 20-25 minutes . Cut & serve immediately !

This goes great with a pasta dish & a salad !

Enjoy !!
