I made these for our open house. I used green olives instead of black and skipped the salt. Thank you for a terrific recipe! Update: I made these a second time. I used the green olives as I had before, skipped the salt again and tried it with cream cheese because I was out of mayo. Served it on marble rye bread. They were even better! Read More

These were just odd tasting to me. They were best with the cheese quite crispy. I was basically the only one in the family who ate more then one. Read More

This is pretty much the same recipe that my mom used to make, except that she did not add salt or curry, and she used cocktail rye, which makes very nice hors d'oeuvres. You can actually spread this olive cheese spread on the bread or muffins, and then freeze on a cookie sheet. Once frozen, store in foil and a Ziploc freezer bag. All you have to do when company comes is pop them in the oven, and voila! Instant appetizers! Read More

So glad I found this recipe! My grandma used to make this often! I omitted the salt and found that the amount of curry powder was right on for my husband and I. I used red onions with good results. Thanks for such a yummy and easy recipe! Read More

Very good. I had not used curry powder before so the taste was a little different from anything I have ever made. I will make them again sometime for an appetizer but I might use less curry powder. Read More

These were VERY well received. I doubled the recipe. It calls for a little more salt than I like though. Read More

Great taste interesting mix of flavors. I used a dense multi-grain toast in place of the English muffins. I also added sliced pimento-stuffed green olives and omitted the salt as others had suggested (you will not miss it!). I used a low-fat mayo and found the taste to be a bit too sweet and overpowering - I'll use less mayo next time. I was afraid to put too much curry powder so I only used a tiny pinch but it can definitely handle more. I'd make these again but I'll keep tinkering with the ingredients! Read More

Very good. A little salty...I will leave the extra salt out next time. I served on 1/2 English muffin with a slice of fresh tomato on the bottom. I also froze the left over mixture. I did fine in the freezer. Next time I will freeze it in ice cube trays so I can thaw just what I need. Read More
