Jalapeño Olive Cheese Bread


The first time I made this Jalapeño Olive Cheese Bread, I followed Ree’s recipe exactly.  There is nothing not to like in this recipe. Green olives (which are my favorite), two kinds of cheese, butter, green chiles… and, oh yes, jalapeños.

But of course, the SECOND time I made it, I decided to add a little bit more cheese. Now, normally I would say you can’t have enough cheese, but with this recipe, you absolutely can.
