Olive and Cheese Bread Recipe

 The shelter gave me a lot more stale bread yesterday.  This is what I returned to them today.  Olive and cheese bread.  I have made this for years and people love it.  It makes a great meal with a salad or works as a good appetizer too.

I will give you the recipe for 1 loaf which makes two halves after you split it.  Chop up 1 can of black olives drained.

Add 1/2 C. soft butter, 1/4 C. mayonnaise, 1 tsp. granulated garlic, 1 tsp. granulated onion and 2 C. shredded mozzarella. Add 1 bunch of sliced green onions.  Mix this all together thoroughly.
 Slice the bread in half and spread half of the mixture on 1 half and the rest on the second half.  I made tons of this but this recipe will make just the two halves when you split one loaf.

 Bread as far as you can see! I made about 30 halves.

 You can use any kind of Italian or French bread.  The rounds are focaccia.

 Bake these for 25 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

 Remove them and turn your oven to broil.

 Broil them just until they start to brown.

Keep a close eye on them so they don't burn.  They brown very fast under the broiler.  I ran out of the cheese mixture so I made the rest into garlic bread but I forgot to take a photo of it.

Well I would skip the olives though :-) perhaps it would work with tomatos? or is it too moist do You think? Well dried tomatoes perhaps?

Have a great day!
An olive lover's dream!

I love this stuff and now thanks to you I've got a huge craving for it. Haven't made it in quite a while and now I'm thinking it would be awesome with goat cheese! That's a lot of loaves you made!

Cheese and olive bread, that reminds me of Montreal and that bakery that does not exist anymore.

It would not be good for this to be around my house! It would truly disappear way too quickly!

My mom used to make this. She called them Whozits and the spread was on English muffins. We still make them for holidays and as snacks. LOVE THEM!

What I wonder is how they are going to get along without you, come summer? When you need to devote your time to gardening... Do they know this is going to happen...?
