Olives. Most people either love ’em or hate ’em, and in my family there is definitely nothing but LOVE for the round little green and black treats. My kids literally cannot get enough of them!

During a visit a few months ago, my friend Edie introduced us to the joys of olive bread, something I had never even heard of before. She made it as an afterthought, a side dish to serve alongside a much more impressive main course, but my family was all about the bread. In our house, where we favor simplicity, this is good enough to serve as a main course, but it also makes a great party dish to share!

My own version uses a sourdough round, but you could also simply spread the cheese mixture over top of two halves of a loaf of french bread.
