This bruschetta is a great choice for tapas-style entertaining – giant green olives stuffed with garlic combine with gorgonzola cheese for a full flavored appetizer.

Ingredients

  • 18 large garlic stuffed green olives
  • 1/2 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup crumbled gorgonzola cheese
  • Rustic-style Italian bread, about 8-inch diameter
  • Extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Cut about six 1/2-inch thick slices from the center section of the Italian bread, then cut each of those slices in half. Preheat a grill pan (or grill). Brush both sides of each piece of bread with olive oil. Grill the bread until lightly toasted and set aside.
  • Finely chop the garlic stuffed olives and place in a mixing bowl. Add the whipped cream cheese and crumbled gorgonzola. Combine thoroughly.
  • Divide the olive-cheese mixture amongst the bread slices and place them in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place in the oven for about 3 minutes to soften the cheese and warm the olives. Serve immediately.
