Cheese and Olive Bread

Cheese & Olive Bread

Happy Friday!  I am a week behind on French Friday’s with Dorie.  I was out of town last week, so I didn’t get a chance to make the Back-of-the-Card Cheese and Olive Bread.  This week’s recipe is a dessert, and I have decided to wait and make it next week on my birthday.

Back-of-the-Card Cheese and Olive Bread is a recipe Dorie got from a cheese makers’ organization and tweaked a bit.  It is a savory quick bread filled with cheese and olives (who would have guessed?).

The olives in the bread come from two sources:  tapenade and chopped olives.  I used a store-bought tapenade and Kalamata olives.  I used cheddar cheese since that’s what we had on hand.

I really liked this bread.  I served it for dinner with tomato soup and a salad.  The flavors all went nicely together.  The bread was also tasty toasted the next morning for breakfast.

You can find the recipe for Back-of-the-Card Cheese and Olive Bread in Dorie Greenspan’s book Around My French Table.
