White Olive Bread

This white olive bread recipe is moist and soft on the inside and tastes delicious! It’s a small level up from a basic white bread but the taste is much better! It’s great as a toast, especially with homemade butter and other condiments! Thus, naturally, it will work with a soup or stew very well and I as such recommend you use this bread with them!

Depending on the salt content of the olives- I would suggest using less salt if the olives are salty once drained. If not salty once drained you can add a pinch to enhance the flavour of the bread.
