Olive Cheese Toast Appetizers

Olive Cheese Toast Appetizers

Garlic bread goes gourmet…and it’s delicious!! California grown Kalamata olives give it an upgrade you won’t soon forget. It’s just as simple as it’s always been, but now it really gives a punch of flavor. Although it’s not at all diet friendly, I subscribe to the idea that an occasional indulgence is perfectly fine!
