Salty olives pair well with this bread's cream cheese and chives. Even folks who normally avoid olives can't resist slices of this colorful bread.


  • 3 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon minced chives


  1. In a large bowl, combine biscuit mix and sugar. In another bowl, whisk egg and buttermilk. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in the Swiss cheese, olives and walnuts.
  2. Transfer to a greased 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
  3. In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and chives. Serve with bread. Refrigerate leftovers.
