Olive Cheese Bread

This recipe comes from the Pioneer Woman's recipes.

1 regular can whole black (ripe) olives
1 6-oz jar pimiento-stuffed olives
2 green onions
3/4 pound Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup real mayonnaise
1 stick butter, softened
1 loaf French bread

Roughly chop black and green olives. Slice green onions and give them a rough chop. Combine green onions and olives with the softened butter, 1/2 cup mayonnaise, and grated Monterey Jack cheese. Mix thoroughly. Slice French bread in half lengthwise, then spread mixture evenly over the halves.

Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes, or until thoroughly melted and starting to turn light brown and bubbly. Cut into diagonal slices and serve with salad, with soup, with spaghetti, or as a yummy appetizer.

Make-ahead tips: You can make the cheese mixture up to two days ahead of time and store in the refrigerator. Or, you can spread the mixture on the bread and freeze the bread, unbaked, for several months.
