Tasty Tuesday ~~ Italian Cheesy Bread

Talk about comfort food! Friend Roger made this recently to go with his wonderful shrimp etouffee, and it was some good, y'all. (I'm sure I left out a few of his ingredients in my haste to write down the recipe, but whatever spices and garnishes you add to your bread will surely taste good.)

As always, easy, cheap & delicious goes a long way with me. Enjoy...

Italian Cheesy Bread

1 loaf french bread, but lengthwise
1 stick butter (I use Smart Balance) at room temperature
1 cup mayo (Duke's sugar free worked great)
8 oz. grated mozzerella
1/2 cup parmessan
1/4 c. chopped green onions
1 small can chopped black olives
1/2 tsp. pepper (or cayenne)

Preheat oven to 350. Butter the bread, then spread on mayo. Sprinkle on cheeses, green onions and olives. Season according to taste. Bake about 15 minutes. Serve hot. Yum!
