Cheesy Bread

Last week, I was invited to a camp fire party.  A friend of mine is moving up north, so this was her goodbye.  They've sold everything from their house, so it was an outdoor potluck party where we brought out own chairs to sit around the fire and if we wanted to use plates, we'd have to bring them too.

I wasn't sure what to make, so I made a variation of Pioneer Woman's Cheesy Bread.  Except, I didn't have all the ingredients, so I made my own variation.
Cheese Bread

1 6 oz can of black olives, drained
1 14 oz can of artichoke hearts, drained
2 green onions
1/4 pound of butter, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 pound mozza, grated
1 loaf crusty French Bread

Slice bread in half length-wise. Chop olives, artichoke hearts and onions, mix everything together well and spread over the tops of the two pieces of bread. Bake in oven at 325 for 20-25 minutes, then broil for a few minutes until the edges start to turn brown.

A few days later, I went to another potluck, this time for the wrap up of my cooking club. I had planned to bring a cake, but one of the girls there had also been at the goodbye party and made it very clear that I should bring the cheesy bread again.  When I got there, the girls had already heard about this bread.  Luckily, it lived up to its reputation and was gone like a shot.

Also, not to toot my own horn, but another girl from the goodbye party made it herself, only she followed the Pioneer Woman's recipe exactly.  Reports from her and her guests are that my variation is better.


  1. I'd trust your food over PW's ANY DAY OF THE WEEK!

  2. Ditto what Zadge said. I'll be making it. It sounds good!!
