You can make the olive/cheese mixture two days ahead of time. Store tightly covered in fridge. OR, spread olive cheese mixture on the bread and freeze tightly wrapped, up to six months. Thaw before baking. The cheese topping also makes a delicious spread for crackers. You can substitute drained chopped artichoke hearts and grated Parmesan cheese for the black olives and Monterrey Jack cheese. Yum! Serves 8 From Pioneer woman Cooks
