  • 1 cup chopped pitted olives (I use black)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped green onions (green and white part)
  • 1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese (I use white) or emmental
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (light is fine)
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
  • salt to taste (don't use if olives are very salty)
  • 8 English muffins, halved


  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • PREPARE OLIVE-CHEESE MIXTURE: Place all ingredients in a bowl (except muffins) and mix with a spoon until well combined.
  • ASSEMBLE: Divide mixture onto the 16 muffin halves and spread evenly to cover. Cut each muffin half into 4 quarters to make 64 pieces in all. To freeze (Note 1
  • BAKE: Lay appetizer pieces on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment. Bake for 10-11 minutes or until bubbly and lightly browned. Best served hot, but also good at room temperature.


  1. To freeze (before baking): Place pieces on a baking sheet and put in freezer for 45 minutes until frozen. Pile pieces into a ziploc bag, then put back in freezer to use when needed. No need to defrost before baking.
