Stuffed Olive Cheese Bread

One of my good friends likes a recipe we make called a Lava Loaf - which is bread stuffed with a yummy garlic cheese mixture. When I came across this recipe about oh, 4 or 5 (?) years ago it caught my eye because as much as I love the garlic cheese mixtures, I also love olives and this uses both black and green! Yum! So here it is; perfect for a summer evening on the deck with a nice bottle of wine.

Stuffed Olive Cheese Bread

1 regular can of black olives.
6-oz jar of pimento stuffed olives
2 green onions, chopped
3/4 pound of Monterey Jack Cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 stick butter
1 loaf of French Bread

Combine the chopped olives and green onions with the butter. Add the mayonnaise and cheese. Mix thoroughly. Slice the French bread in 1/2 lengthwise and scoop out a small line of breading from the center all the way down to make a small indentation in the loaf to fill. Spread each 1/2 with the cheese/olive mixture. Bake at 325 for about 25 minutes.Print Friendly and PDF
