How to Make Warm Marinated Olives


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

    Combine the olives, fennel seeds, garlic, chile flakes, orange peel and thyme in a small ovenproof baking dish just large enough to hold all the ingredients.
  2. Add enough olive oil to the dish to come within 1 inch of the top of the baking dish. Cover dish with foil and bake until the olives are hot and the olive oil is bubbly, about 45 minutes.
  3. During the last 15 minutes, wrap the bread in foil and add it to the oven to warm. Serve the hot olives with crusty bread on the side.
