Hey Brian….wherever you are.
Brian was a dear friend of one of our girls. He, surprisingly, shared some awesome recipes. While in high school. And are we glad he did. Man, oh, man, the number of times we have made Brian’s Bread. And man, oh, man, the number of times I have made it at work. (in case you haven’t noticed, we eat at work a lot!)
For those of you who may have this recipe, this will be a great reminder to pull your recipe out and make it again. It may have been a while since you have done so. And for those poor souls who have not ever made, or have never had, Brian’s Bread, rush to the store, get the ingredients, and make it. Serve it with steak. Serve it with chicken. Serve it when you grill outside. Serve it with bbq. Eat it all by itself! Just give it a try. And it will soon become a favorite of yours, too.
Brian’s Bread – (shared knowing Brian would be proud to know so many are liking his recipe!)
2 loaves of French/Italian bread
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
2/3 cup chopped black olives
6 green onions, chopped fine
1 Tsp garlic powder
Mix all ingredients. Spread on two loaves of French/Italian Bread. Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 15 minutes.
(my notes: Slice your french/italian bread long way in half – divide mix in half between the two loaves and place in loaves, spreading evenly over loaf. We like to go ahead and slice our loaf then almost all the way through in slices – and then we like to wrap each loaf in foil – then place in oven – YUM)
Variation: Stuff hard rolls with about 3 rounded teaspoonfuls and place in pan covered with aluminum foil.
On another note: Look for a Thursday Flash Giveaway! In other words, some cute little items I saw, of all places, in our Family Christian Book Store…for the kitchen! Ain’t that precious? And you will like them! Thursday Flash will go quick! Sign up Thursday – they are gone and won Friday!
