Looking for a change from the “usual” garlic cheese bread? This olive cheese bread is salty, and cheesy, with just a little onion bite. Anita absolutely loves olives, so this was a major hit with her.
Next time I make this, I might kick it up even further by using stuffed olives. I can see where jalapeno-stuffed or garlic-stuffed olives would really take this over the top. I’d also use pepper jack cheese instead of Monterrey jack just for a little more heat.
Also try my jalapeno popper garlic cheese bread.
