About the Recipe

It requires very little prep work! Mix the ingredients, spread them on the bread and bake! It really doesn't get much easier than that! This would be a good recipe to have your kiddos help out with too. They can help mix and then get their hands dirty spreading the olive mixture onto the bread.


  • 6 oz. full fat sour cream

  • 4 tablespoons softened butter

  • 7 oz. green olives, drained and sliced

  • 6 oz. black olives, drained and sliced

  • 8 oz. shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • ¼ cup thinly sliced green onions

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 8-10 oz. loaf French bread

  • Kosher salt

  • fresh cracked pepper


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a medium bowl combine sour cream, garlic powder and butter along with a large pinch of salt and pepper. Stir until mostly smooth.

  3. Add cheese and green onion and stir until well combined.

  4. Fold olives into the cheese mixture.

  5. Slice French bread loaf in half widthwise and then in half lengthwise.

  6. Divide olive mixture between the four pieces, spreading it in an even layer on the cut side of the bread.

  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted and the ends start to get golden brown.

  8. Broil for 1-2 minutes or until the cheese starts to get dark golden brown.

  9. Slice, garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy! Recipe and Photo Credit: Olive Cheese Bread - Midwest Foodie (
