If you want a great side recipe that will leave people asking for more and begging for the recipe, this Hot Cheddar Olive Bread might be just what you are looking for. I recently took a trip with my husband’s family (all 40 of us) to Montana. It was a great trip. I’ll share some pictures of our time together in this post. Out of this trip came great memories, but I was also able to experience and get ahold of my mother-in-laws famous hot cheddar olive bread recipe that I get to share with you today. Check here for more of my favorite bread recipes.
Hot Cheddar Olive Bread
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons chopped green onion
- ½ tsp. chili powder
- 1 full small can of sliced olives
- Heat oven to 350°.
- In small bowl combine cheese, mayonnaise onion and chili
- powder. Stir until well mixed.
- Slice French bread lengthwise.
- Spread each half of bread with cheese mixture. Arrange olive slices over cheese.
- Place bread in foil or on pan and bake uncovered for 10 to 15 minutes.
I grabbed a piece of cheesey bread as I walked through the buffet table the night my in-laws had prepared the meal. I didn’t think anything of it, and it wasn’t the first thing I jumped to try…until everyone around me started showing the love.
“You used to make this all the time. I’ve missed it.”
“This is my favorite.”
“Oh my word. I love this bread.”
People kept talking and talking about how much they love it. I guess my mother-in-law used to make it all the time for family functions but hadn’t in quite a while. It got quite a stir. I tried it and loved it too, so I just had to snatch the recipe to pass on to you. I hope you enjoy. My husband doesn’t do olives, so she made a batch with just cheese. That’s always an option for other olive-haters in your world.
More Pictures from Our Montana Trip
In Montana we were able to explore other forms of transportation. Flat Head lake is the most gorgeous place to explore the waters and God’s natural beauty.
Time with the cousins is always a highlight. Swimming together, playing on the playground, jumping on the trampoline, playing whiffle ball and outdoor late night movies were among the highlights.
Our pirate treasure hunt on “Skull Island” was definitely a hit with the kids. Thanks to the older cousins and aunts and uncles who worked so hard to set the clues, concoct the story and create the adventure. This was a highlight for us!
The Glacier National Park hike was overwhelmingly beautiful. God created some amazing things in our world, didn’t He?
Sitting by the campfire – doing S’Mores….doing life. I love the family I married into, and I feel so blessed by our time to get away and enjoy one another.
I hope you enjoy the hot cheddar olive bread. Let it remind you to start creating fun family memories in your family also.
We purchased the ingredients for the Baked Chicken Dijon recipe and the Hot Cheddar Olive Bread today. We made the bread tonight and boy was it great (but ate too much). It will be a good recipe when the Grandkids from Tacoma are down here in California. Looking forward to making the Chicken Dijon in a couple of days. Thanks for the recipe, Doug.
