    Cookgirl's Note:

    Brother Bo's (in) famous olive sandwiches. I would NEVER eat these when I was a child. What little girl would eat something called bug sandwiches? In my old age I've since come to love and appreciate these sandwiches. Bo says for a nice presentation, cut off the bread crusts. Traditionally served with a glass of previously-frozen milk. Psst-I have a little secret. Don't tell Bo, but sometimes I sneak a few thin slices of red onion in my sandwich.

      Now we're talking. This is the epitome of sandwiches, and one should take their time to devour as such. Very easy to put together, but the bang for the buck is worth a million. I did follow our author's suggestion and use just the slightest bit of red onion (sliced very, very, thinly). Bravo for bug sandwiches! Pssst...the pepper is a must.

      What a surprise to find this recipe here! We have been eating these (but called olive sandwiches - boring, I know), for at least 50 years. Have never bothered with black pepper or draining the olives. But just delicious - if you like olives.
