This is another easy entertaining favorite that we’ve made again and again! You probably have to be a fan of black olives to enjoy this as much as we do.


1 1/2 cups shredded aged cheddar cheese

1 cup pitted black olives, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup light mayonnaise

1 green onion, chopped

1/2 teaspoon curry powder

1/2 baquette, cut diagonally into 1/3-inch-thick slices

3 tbspns (approx.) olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, combine cheese, olives, mayonnaise, green onion, curry powder.

3. Brush both sides of the baguette slices lightly with olive oil. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake until bread is starting to turn golden.

4. Adjust oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Top baquette slices with the olive and cheese mixture and return to oven until cheese has melted.


The original recipe called for English Muffins instead of toasted baguettes, but I’ve always used baguettes. The original recipe also suggests substituting the cheddar with mozzarella or Gruyere (or half and half), but I have not tried this option yet.

Our Home Rating? 4/5 bites
