olive crostini

Jen made these tasty olive crostini for us when we were at the Log Mansion. Hopefully, I won’t be embarrassing her when I tell you that I had two and Dave didn’t get a single one before her two youngest sons ate the entire batch!

Yes, they are that good – 10 and 15-year-old boys may gobble them up before you know what happened.  Enjoy.

Jen’s Black and Green Olive Crostini

1 can California black olives or 1 cup pitted Kalamata olives, drained
1  1/2 cups pimento-stuffed green olives, drained
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup minced Italian parsley
2 baguettes

Additional freshly chopped parsley, for garnish (which I did not have available – would look much prettier and fresher!)

chop olives

In a food processor, pulse together both olive types, garlic, Parmesan, and butter, until chopped and well mixed. Transfer to a bowl.

Fold in the Jack cheese and parsley. Mix well.

Cut baguette into thin slices. Turn broiler to high. Line a baking sheet with foil.

abking sheet

Spread as many bread slices as will fit on the baking sheet with a thick layer of the olive mixture. Cook under broil until the top is brown and bubbly.

Make another batch or two or three.

The recipe may be cut in half, it makes a ton!

You should include a note about Blake’s insane appetite… 😉
