Ingredients

  • 1 bunch green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped Kalamata olives
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies
  • 1 (8 ounce) package shredded reduced fat sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 loaf cocktail rye bread or sourdough bread

Directions

In bowl, mix together all the ingredients except the bread. Spread on top bread slices.

Freeze flat on baking sheet few hours, then place in resealable freezable bags.

Preheat oven 350 degrees F. Bake 10-12 minutes, just until corners of bread start to turn brown.

Spicy Advice: If cooking immediately, (not frozen) bake 8-10 minutes. Raid an olive bar for good quality Kalamata olives…it makes a difference.

Egg Shopping Tip

The fresher the better. Eggs in supermarkets don't even have half the flavor of fresh eggs. Try to make some time and head to the nearest farmer's market and treat yourself to some farm fresh eggs. They may be pricier but you get every cent back in flavor and a golden orange yolk.

Egg Cooking Tip

With eggs, cooking at a low temperature is almost always preferred. It allows the eggs to keep better texture. Also if you ever mix your uncooked and hard boiled eggs, do not fret. A trick to distinguish the two is a spin on the counter top. Hard boiled eggs will spin with ease while uncooked eggs won't get any momentum.
