“If you love olives, you will LOVE this spread! This makes about 38-40 of the most delicious crostini appetizers, and they will be the first to vanish at you get together! Make certain to hand-squeeze out the excess moisture in the olives before using in this recipe. Small pumpernickel party slices also work well in place of the French baguette! I strongly suggest to chill the mixture for about 5 hours or even overnight to blend the flavors before topping on the bread, just warm very slightly for a few seconds in the microwave to make spreading easier. If you want lots of olive topping, then double the recipe but do not double the garlic amount!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl combine all ingredients (I would suggest to cover and chill a couple of hours minimum to blend the flavors).
  2. Top each bread slice evenly with mixture.
  3. Arrange on baking sheets.
  4. Broil with the oven door partially opened for 3-4 minutes until bubble and golden.
  5. Delicious!
