Cream Cheese and Olive Everything

"Cream cheese and olive is a classic "everything". I always have this mixed up in the refrigerator. It is good on English muffins or bagels. We use it on crackers as a snack. My mom made sandwiches and put it in my lunchbox for school. My husband likes me to put a little sour cream in it and make it into a dip. The number of olives you put in are your choice. This is so simple and good."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

If your cream cheese is not a room temperature, I just put it in a bowl and microwave it for a short time----don't cook it.

Step 2

On a bread board, cut up the olives and add to the cream cheese along with the olive juice and milk; mix well.

Step 3

If you want to use it for a dip or cracker spread, add the sour cream (adding more if you want). Keep refrigerated.

I made the dip a day ahead so flavors had a chance to mix. I dipped with bagel chips for a great snack and we loved it!

I made a cream cheese and olive sandwich for lunch and it tasted so good I made another recipe of it to have in the fridge to grab for snacking while I watch television. This is great on pita chips and crackers, and I will enjoy it on bagels too. Thanks for sharing this with us Mimi!

I love olives so this has been a long time favorite with me. I have made these a few times using this recipe and it can be so addictive! I made up some pita and bagel chips to have this on. What a great choice!

Now your talking! I made this to make Cream Cheese and Olive Sandwiches, and also used some of it on my whole wheat English Muffins for breakfast. I am an olive lover, so this always hits the spot with me. Thanks for posting so others can try it too Courtney! Linda
