    ThatBobbieGirl's Note:

    Have you been thinking, lately, that you really need more green olives in your diet? Of course you have! This is just one of my husband's food brainstorms. He comes up with wonderful ideas for *me* to make. Isn't he sweet? I've started to notice a pattern: most of them involve green olives, or garlic, or both!

      The kids and I had this for lunch today. My one DD and I both love green olives but the 3 other kids do not care for them at I expected to hear some grumbling and complaining. To my surprise everyone enjoyed these sandwiches. My DS said he loved the zipppieness the olives gave his sandwich. Since we love cheese but do not consider American cheese in that category, I used slices of Havarti and Munster on our grilled cheese. Thanks for posting.

      I love olives in this recipe got me excited.....It was fantastic !!! I had used Italian bread so I required a few extra slices of cheese just to cover the surface.. So what I did because I love I layered 2 slices of American on one side then the olive mixture then 2 slices of provolone and 2 more slices of American ....YUMMY !! I thought by having the cheese as the first layer that the olives would kind of melt into the cheese which it did....Oh...I also had added a few capers as well with the olives. Great fast recipe to make....went perfect with a nice bowl of soup. MMMM....will be making again....Thanks for sharing ThatBobbieGirl.....
