Olive Crostini

  • 1/2 cup black olives
  • 1/2 cup green olives with pimientos
  • 2 medium cloves garlic
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup Monterey jack cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 baguette

Chop the olives in a food processor. Transfer them to a medium bowl. With the machine running, drop the garlic through the feed tube of the food processor and mince. Add the Parmesan, butter, and olive oil; process into a paste. Add the butter mixture to the bowl with the olives. Fold in the jack cheese and parsley. Cut the baguette into thin slices and spread each slice generously with the olive mixture. Cook under the broiler until bubbly and lightly browned - about 2 minutes.

Serve right out of the oven. It helps to make the olive mixture in advance and spread it right before you put it in the oven.
