Great bread; family loved it! I was surprised that a recipe with no oil or eggs would work in the bread machine but it did. By accident, I added the sliced olives before turning the bread machine on. No problem and I think the olive taste was stronger although they got minced into smaller pieces. I also used honey instead of sugar. All in all, a great bread and I WILL make it again!

Delicious!Just the right amount of cheesy goodness (I used a white, extra-sharp cheddar, as it is always found in my 'fridge), combined with the light flavor of green olives in a perfectly-textured bread.This bread is great both warm (out of the machine) and room temperature.I'll be making this bread again and again!
