Olive Cheese Bread
Oh boy, this bread recipe is a great one. Our family loves this Rhodes Bread, you can see I am always creating new bread recipes to try, including this Olive Cheese Bread.
Scrumptious warm bread, with little bits of tangy black olives, and creamy cheese, what a great idea! This bread is easy enough to make, I had my daughter make it while I sat back and watched!
I love to use these frozen dough loaves and make unique mix in bread. You can easily add savory ingredients, like cheese, olives, pepperoni, peppers, ham, bacon, etc… OR sweet- like chocolate chips, cinnamon, butter, sugar, marshmallow, nutella…. and make amazing bread that seems really elaborate but takes only about 10 minutes to add in to the bread. LOVE an easy but still homemade idea like that.
I love to make extra loaves in case the kids get into the bread before dinner time. Seriously, I can turn my back and POOF one loaf has disappeared! If not for the two loaf rule, my poor hubby wouldn’t get any.
What we’ll need for the bread-
1 to 1.5 cans black whole olives drained.
2 loaves partially thawed Rhodes Bake N Serv bread
1/4 cup whole parsley
2 cups mozzarella cheese- shredded.
two loaf pans and cooking spray
To begin, drain your olives and place them on a cutting board.
I have 1 to 1.5 cans as an option- you can add lots of olives to this bread. I began and used 1 can, but if you really really love olives, feel free to add some more.
Lightly chop your olives.
Add your loaves of bread to the cutting board.
Begin by slicing the bread into strips.
Once the strips are cut, add in the whole parsley, the eggs and the olives. Then gradually begin adding the cheese.
Begin full out chopping. Once you have a good amount chopped, fold the top layer over and into itself to continue chopping.
This is about what you should end up with. Everything nicely chopped into pieces, and the add ins mixed well with the dough.
Add the bread evenly to both pans. You also make these into muffins or small loaves.
Allow the bread to rise, about 2-3 hours depending on the room temperature. I allow it to rise to the top of the pan.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes, remove from pan and continue to cool, OR cut and serve.
See that crispy lovely brown on the sides of the loaf? That is scrumptious cheese that has gotten super crispy and lovely!
You can’t see the yummy cheese in there because it’s white like the bread, but it’s delicious!
If you have leftovers, try toasting some slices and see how amazing this bread is!
