FFwD - Back-of-the-Card Cheese and Olive Bread



It's French Fridays with Dorie time, and this week's recipe is Back-of-the-Card Cheese and Olive Bread.  Why?  Because the recipe was off  card provided by a cheesemaker.

I was sceptical about this one, especially as it is an unyeasted loaf.  However, I needn't have worried - it was absolutely delicious.  I am not normally a fan of savoury cakes and muffins, but I loved this.  I ate slices of it as is - no spread is required.  It is good warm and cooled.

To see what the other Doristas thought, visit the LYL section of the website.

This one was good, wasn't it - even if I did "go rogue" a little ;)

This was pretty good, wasn't it?

I guess I need to pay more attention to the backs of my food packages. I wonder what I have been missing...

Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella said...

I've found some of those back of the packet recipes quite interesting and often quite reliable :)

Johanna GGG said...

it looks lovely - recipes on packets can be surprisingly good

Oh, after the Savory Cheese and Chive bread from a few years ago, I wasn't skeptical at all.

This is a savory bread to make often, with whatever cheese and extras are in the fridge. Glad you enjoyed it!

This looks like it came out really well. I need to experiment more with savoury baking. A free recipe card is also always nice, especially when the recipe is decent!

I never look behind, I really should :D
Delicious!

You're absolutely right. This bread is great just as is, no spread. But, Gaye, spread some really delicious butter on it, and it's fabulous. That's my problem - if there's bread, my butter won't be far behind. Your loaf looks delicious. Glad you enjoyed it as much as I did (and, most of us.) Betsy can now automatically set the LYL so we post early for you. Hope that's helpful.

I am glad you liked the loaf! I was sure I'd love it, I love olives and sun-dried tomatoes, I have no idea where mine went wrong! Maybe I should play around with the fillings.

I have to say I'm enjoying this more the next day. Toasted. I'm glad to know this one even though breads, especially before dinner, aren't my thing.

I loved the fact that there was no yeast involved in this recipe... yat again it didn't really feel like making bread... more like making a savoury cake/bread!

Betsy said...

Glad this one surprised you. It looks great.

Liz Berg said...

I'm so glad yours was so tasty! I'm going to have to try this again with less salty olives :/

Guyla said...

Your bread looks delicious! I ate several slices as is too.

I love olive bread - I used to get one in switzerland that had olives and gherkins...heaven!

acookingmizer said...

I had doubts about its un-yeasted-ness too but then it had a lot of baking soda so I wasnt too worried after that :)

yummychunklet said...

Love the slices of whole olives!

Wow, your photo really presents a case for me bookmarking this one, it looks just gorgeous and I can almost taste it looking at it. Must make it soon. Has all the hallmarks of it being a success around here.
