Feta Cheese and Olive Bread

READY IN: 3hrs 5mins
Recipe by najwa

Try using herbed feta cheese instead of plain, or add your favorite herbs ... yummy!! I always freeze leftovers, then heat in the microwave. Makes 1.5 pound loaf

Very good bread! Deliciously savory. And I certainly can see how it would make a great grilled cheese sandwich; I plan to try that. But it needs no topping for moisture; it is just scrumptious on its own. I put the feta in during the second kneading and the olives at the very end of the second cycle. If you want the olives to be distributed in larger pieces, I recommend putting them in whole (but pitted!) rather than halves. Do make this bread, folks! :-)
