French Cheese Bread

What an easy and delicious bread to add YUM to any meal! 

We enjoyed it along taco salad.
(They're both cheesey!!) 

I was delighted to see this recipe in a cookbook gifted to me from
my dear friend Lark at Lark's Country Heart...entitled
"Our Valley Cookbook Vol. 2" 

It is one of two community cookbooks Lark has been a part of putting together.  It's full of easy, simple, delicious dishes. 

This dish will knock your socks off and your family will love it. 


1/2 c. mayonnaise
(I used light)
1/2 c. margarine, softened
(I used Smart Balance)
1 c. black olives, chopped
2 c. mozzarella cheese
(I used Italian)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
6 green onions, chopped
1 large loaf French bread, cut lengthwise
(or in slices) 

Add mayo to margarine and mix well.  Add remaining ingredients, except for bread.  Spread mixture over bread halves.  Bake at 350 for 15 - 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned. 

(The spread can be made ahead and even freezes well).
