My guests went gaga over this Olive Cheese Bread! I prepared this last weekend as we had a simple get-together and they all loved it! Blabbing out about how delicious this is. I am forced to sent the recipe to their email addresses then and there! The main reason I am writing this down now for everyone to try. For some, this might be a little strong but if you are like me who loves olives so much, I promise you’ll dig this!

How to make Olive Cheese Bread
Step 1: Ready the black olives and pimiento-stuffed green olives. Roughly chop them. And into thin pieces, slice the green onions.
Step 2: In a mixing bowl, add the butter, mayonnaise, cheese, olives, and green onions. Combine until the ingredients are mixed.
Step 3: Onto French bread that has been sliced lengthwise, spread the mixture. Place in a preheated 350 degrees F and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes until the cheese has melted and starts browning.
You can serve the dip with crackers or place it in the fridge for up to 2 days and enjoy it as a dip.
