Wink I Love Olive Loaf!

Yes, I really do love olive loaf. Whether it's the generous smell of garlic powder, the creamy smothering of Velveeta cheese, or just the chopped olives swimming in it all, I do love it so. Nothing like baked olive loaf to make my day.

Err, what does olive loaf have to do with Battlestar Galactica?

Nothin'. Absolutely nothin'.

What does the new mini have to do with Battlestar Galactica?

Ditto.

Perhaps the next time I make olive loaf I can reimagine it by leaving out the olives.

Maybe no one will notice.

LOL! This was great, Muffit!

Such a good analogy - and ABSOLUTELY PERFECT with regards to the Abomination!

Thanks all!!! Always great to hear from you!!! .

And F.G., here is the recipe (really easy):

OLIVE LOAF
======================
1 loaf sourdough french bread (some people use sweet)
1 pkg of Velveeta cheese
2 small cans chopped black olives
Butter and/or margarine
garlic powder

Preheat oven to 375. Cover the bottom of a cookie sheet with foil. Split the french bread lengthwise so that you have 2 half loaves with crusts on the bottom. Generously smother both halves with butter and/or margarine (I use both). Sprinkle with a goodly portion of garlic powder. Coat with a layer of olives. Slice or shred Velveeta and cover olives with it (gotta use Velveeta, it tastes and melts the best). Sprinkle again with garlic powder. Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is fully melted. Optional: broil an additional 2 minutes. Cut into slices.

My mom used to cook this every Easter when we trekked up to my grandma's. It was gone before we even started dinner.

Enjoy!

That sounds good, except in my case I would use olive oil instead of butter and Cambert or Chevrie instead of that V stuff. (I'm a cheese snob, lol. To me Velveta is about as 'cheeselike' as formica.)

Hi Micheleh!

Yeah, you're absolutely right, to a cheese connoisseur Velveeta is about as close to cheese as the remake is to BSG. But I love it anyway! After all, no other cheese goes with peanut butter and jelly!

(I've got my daughter eating PB/J and cheese now. All I need now is to find some cinnamon apple jelly and I'll be all set!)

Ooh, maybe you know this one, I once had some kind of cheese filled fritter in San Francisco at a fancy restaurant and for the life of me I can't figure out what kind of cheese they used. It was really sweet (they might have added sugar) and the best dessert I ever had. Any ideas what cheese they might've used?

Thanks!

It may have been marscapone (I'm not sure of the spelling). It's a very sweet cheese.

Gruyere might work on that olive loaf, too....

And there's nothing wrong with Velveeta.

I'm particularly fond, though, of a smoked Brie made at the Blue Heron Cheese Factory in Tillamook, Oregon (also the home of some of the best cheddar in the world).

I am

Thanks Micheleh and Dawg! I'll write those down right now. I like good cheeses too but haven't experimented much so this is cool, one of these could be it!.

Of course, my favorite cheese is Venezuelan Beaver Cheese (as John Cleese would say!!!)

Hi jjrakman! I did a report on Wisconsin in high school and read tons about how Wisconsin is synonymous with cheese. Must be cool to live there.

Oh and Dawg, I had gruyere on my french onion soup at a hotel in Sonoma once and it was so good I didn't even care if I had the main course(!)

I like the cheese commercial they air here where a little girl and her parents are shocked on Christmas morning to see a horde of treasures under the tree - the dad says, "Gee, those must've been /some/ cookies you left Santa". And she says, "I didn't leave him cookies, I left him cheeeeese!"

I know that commercial, Muffit - it's one of my favorites, too. Now they have the California cows hawking California cheese.

But, you can't beat Tillamook Cheddar (Tillamook Creamery Association, not Blue Heron, I think they just make specialty cheeses) - I don't care if you are from Wisconsin.

:p

(I should be careful - wouldn't want to tick off the Captain!)

But Wisconsin cheeses certainly aren't bad.

I am

Yeah, the cow commercials are outrageous: "Ooh, hey, you work out?"

Samantha's Darrin would be proud of today's creative advertisers.

I toured the Tillamook factoryand museum. Great place.

And all of this reminds me of an amusing story...
I go through these periods where I crave a certian food for reasons unknown, and one of these periods was cheese. In an IM with a friend in Texas, I told her I was addicted to cheese. She asked me what kind, and I listed a few, havarti, brie, gouda, etc. and she told me I needed to relax.
She said "You don't have a problem till you're on a street corner eating Velveeta out of a brown paper bag."

Or go to one of their Ice Creameries.

Default hey Muffit...

Actually I have to admit Wisconsin's connection with cheese is more perceived than reality. I mean, yeah we have great cheese here. But if you ever visit, beer is actually way bigger than cheese here. In fact dinking in general is very big here. I mean, I live in Milwaukee, and I can walk three blocks in any direction, no matter where in the city I am, and walk past at least two bars. They are everywhere here. I've traveled around the United States quite a bit and never have I seen it the way it is here. Even the small towns will have nothing but a church, and a bar, and the whole town is built around them. Sometimes, there won't even be a church, just a bar. And in Milwaukee we have festivals going on every weekend in the summer. Most of them celebrate some kind of ethnicity. This weekend, was Greek Fest, Cajun Fest and Pride Fest, a gay/lesbian festival. Not that there's anything wrong with that. And of course there are the myriad of Church festivals. Where the churches block off their parking lots to hold festivals, and of course serve beer to raise money. Tonight I went down to an area of town called Walker's Point. Within three blocks I walked from a trendy dance club called Fly Bar, to a Crab Shack/blues bar, to La Fuente, a mexican cantina, to Club Anything, a Goth bar. Anyway I guess the point is that more than cheese, us Wisconsinites love to party. I can't wait for the 100th Anniversary of Harley Davidson Festivals this summer. It will be a blast. Your all invited of course...
