Olive Cheese Bread

Apr 15, 2016

I love making recipes that I can share with others, and this olive cheese bread is one of my favorites. If you’re a fan of olives, you’ll need to try this recipe to enjoy the mix of salty and creamy flavors. I made this for the first time about a year ago and gave half to my neighbor who is also an olive fanatic. Now when I make it, I always plan on giving the other half to someone else. Let’s just say, this recipe has made me popular with the neighbors! If you’re not in the sharing mood, the second half freezes really well (simply store the bread in a large Ziploc® Freezer Bag and place in the freezer). When you’re ready to enjoy this a second time, just remove it from the freezer and bake it in the oven as normal.

Olive Cheese Bread

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Yield: 6 servings


1 loaf fresh French bread
8 ounces cream cheese
1 can black, pitted olives
1 can green pimento stuffed olives
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese


Begin by finely chopping the olives (a food processor makes this really simple). In a medium bowl, combine chopped olives with the cream cheese and mix well until combined.

Cut the bread lengthwise, making two halves. Generously spread the olive mixture over each half. Don’t be worried about it being too thick because it will all bake into the bread nicely.

Top each half with Monterey Jack cheese. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350° F for about 15 minutes, or until cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown.

Serve warm.
