Olive Cheese BreadNext 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.
