Aunt Elaine's Swiss Cheese & Olive Delights

Denise McShea


This appetizer recipe came from my Aunt Elaine who lives in Newport Beach, California and I've been making it for years. These cheesy bite size munchies have been a home run for my family and is always a requested appetizer for any of our special events including Football season. Thank you Aunt Elaine for this wonderful slam dunk recipe!

How to Make Aunt Elaine's Swiss Cheese & Olive Delights


  1. Cut each of the english muffins in half. Place each half on a cookie sheet and broil until brown, set aside
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients. use enough mayonnaise to hold cheese mixture together.
  3. Spread generous amount on each half and broil again until brown. Cool.
  4. Once cooled, cut each round in quarters. I find the best way to cut is to use a pizza cutter and roll across to quarter. It seems to be less messy than using a knife.
  5. Serve on a platter. So Yummy!
