So, finally creating a sandwich bread I loved yesterday inspired me and I wondered if I could do the same with something a bit more… artisan. One of my favorite breads has always been Kalamata olive bread. I love the chewiness, the briny flavor, the olives.
To me, olives are summer. I don’t know when they are harvested and honestly I don’t care, but I can eat olives and drink a little wine and imagine I am in Italy on a summer afternoon. It’s a mini-vacation without the jet lag.
Well, this low-carb kalamata olive bread is something I am going to be making a lot. It is awesome good and I have all kinds of ideas of how I want to use it. Today I fixed a platter with some deli meat, bleu cheese, olives, artichokes, and the bread. My husband is working late, the kids wanted fried chicken from the Colonel’s, and I had this.
Poor me, right? HA!
Be careful not to overcook the bread or it will be dry. Undercook it just a touch, the top will still be moist, and then let it stand for a minute or two to finish cooking.
