EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

This Cheesy Olive Cracker Bread is a great last-minute appetizer. Just keep the cracker bread on hand and top with whatever's in your fridge. Here are two tasty twists to get you started. Mexican: Substitute 1 1/2 cups shredded taco cheese blend for the Italian cheese blend and 1 plum (Roma) tomato, seeded and finely chopped, for the olives. After baking, top with 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro. All-American: Substitute 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese for the Italian cheese blend and 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled, for the olives. After baking, top with 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley.

Kalamata olives are a dark eggplant color with a rich and fruity flavor.

Look for cracker bread near the deli section of your grocery store. It's often near the gourmet crackers.
