“Of all the different appetizers I've made over the years, this one is always the first to go and it is SUPER easy to make. You can use either sweet or sour dough bread, both are tasty! I will usually assemble the Cheesy Breads the morning of the party on cookie sheets and cover with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge. When everyone has arrived at the party I just pop them in the oven and serve them piping hot! If you don't want the bread to be crunchy, broil them instead of baking them. I've tried them both ways and crunchy is better!”

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, blend Cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, ranch-style dressing mix, black olives and green onions. Increase the amount of mayonnaise as desired if the mixture seems too dry.
  3. Spread equal amounts of the Cheddar cheese mixture on French baguette slices. Arrange slices in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven 15 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and lightly browned. Serve warm.

Being a cheese addict, this turned out to be one of my favorites. Don't attempt to go lite or fat-free on this recipe, because you'll be missing the best part. I did have to add a little more mayo to make the mixture spreadable...using high-quality black olives, fresh green onions and the crustiest bread you can find will make this a major treat. UPDATE: 01/06/06- I still have to say that this is the most requested appetizer for every party that I attend. People want to know if the cheesy bread will be there, regardless if we are attending. 1/2 a packet of ranch is really all you need (otherwise will be too salty)...definitely experiment with other toppings such as grilled chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, etc. Yum.



Try using only 1/2 a package of the Ranch Dressing Mix. They are wonderful and not too salty that way. These are a family favorite and I can't go to a party anymore without promising to bring these along.



This was ok. I received mixed reviews. Many said that it was too salty and others didn't like the mayo taste...said it was too strong. Don't think that I will be trying this one again, but thanks for the post.
