olive cheese bread-1

This is the recipe you need to have in your appetizer arsenal. It is the perfect appetizer for any of your get together’s! It is so simple and easy to make, but completely crave-worthy.

This Olive cheese bread combines all the brine-y flavors I love, in a gooey cheese filling, on top of a crusty bread. This might be as close to appetizer perfection anyone will ever get.

I originally published this recipe as a holiday appetizer, but this is a great appetizer anytime of the year.  I love making it for super bowl parties, where it is always a huge hit.

Olive cheese bread comes together super fast! I love low stress and easy recipes that can be made quickly so I can get out of the kitchen and get back to the party with my friends and family. All you need to do is chop some olives & green, mix some butter and mayo, and stir in cheese. Slather it on top of French bread, bake, and you have an appetizer that will have your guests coming back for seconds.

This appetizer does have a strong briny/olive-y flavor, if you’re not a fan of olives, this might not be your appetizer. But for those of us who park ourselves in front of the relish tray at holiday gatherings? You will absolutely LOVE this! In fact, I had a hard time not eating it while I was taking pictures.
