Olive you, a bushel and a peck

January 4, 2012

This past weekend was a milestone birthday for mrslovey, so I wanted to make her something special.  Something she’d love.  Something I find disgusting.  Ingredients and opportunity combined, and I found myself making this recipe from KAF, a rosemary-olive-asiago loaf.  After making mrslovey chop the olives (have I mentioned I find them disgusting?), the recipe pulled together quickly and easily, I and had the whole thing in the oven within 10 minutes.

The cheese on top turned into a nice savory, crunchy topping, the interior of the loaf was (according to reports) moist with good texture, and the herbs and cheese held up to the olives well.  A little on the rich side, but overall delicious (if you like that kind of thing).

I used sharp cheddar instead of asiago, and I didn’t have fresh herbs or green onions, so used some chives that we had dehydrated at the end of summer.  Other than that, I made it as written.  I saw a reviewer mention that they made this and loved it, but without olives, because they dislike them.  Really?  So pray tell, why did you decide to choose a recipe that says OLIVE in the title? Sheesh.  Anywho, while this was not a recipe that I chose to eat, mrslovey found it delightful, and that’s good enough for me.  I’ll keep making it for her as often as she wants, as long as I never have to actually *touch* the olives.  Seems like a fair trade.
