Sun-Dried Tomato-Olive Bread Makes A Nice Hostess Gift

Party season  is upon us and I've already got a list of events that I have to attend. Showing up to gatherings empty handed is a no-no for me, and probably most of you too, but who has time to shop for a hostess gift when you have a million other things to do during the holiday season? Baked goods are always a hit, but sometimes they can take up precious time too. I found this semi-homemade bread recipe on Golden Blossom Honey that I thought would be a quick and easy gift to whip up and hand to your hostess. Check out this Sun-Dried Tomato-Olive Bread! Wrap it up in a cute paper bag envelope, tie it with a ribbon and call it done!



It does have a Mediterranean flavor to it, so if your recipient doesn't care for the Mediterranean flare, you might want to go with another option. This wasn't one of Jason's favorite bread recipes, but he has never liked rosemary so I knew he wouldn't be a fan. However, I really liked the blend of flavors and ate the whole loaf myself! Using refrigerated pizza dough really cuts down on prep time, so this is the perfect crunch time recipe when you need a hostess gift asap! 


Ingredients
12 Kalamata olives
6 sundried tomatoes, packed in oil
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon dried rosemary
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 (10 ounce) tube refrigerated pizza dough

  1. I does look nom nom nom although it would take you like three minutes to mix some flour with water, oil or yoghurt and make your own dough :PP
    We don't have sundried tomatoes here,but I think I'd really love their taste!

    1. 3 minutes plus extra cleanup time added on. Here you just pop the can and mix, put it in the oven and voila. All done ;) I do think you would love the sundried tomatoes, too! They are so flavorful!

    2. puhlease, you can make it all in one dish :) I will make you ditch all industrial products one day.... even if it takes ten years :)
      I think I would! I know I can make them myself in the oven... but ain't nobody got the time to dry them for five hours in the oven

    3. Have you forgotten that I'm American. We do love our industrial products ;)

      I have a food dehydrator and thought about doing my own, but it's so loud and takes so long to dry out food I barely use it. Though, I will take the time to dry pineapple in the summer. It's sooo delicious!

    4. I think them dehydrators are useful only to those people that eat only raw food... but whenever I hear it takes four or five hours..... Holy Coon's tail!
      But if you have it, you could dry some beets or spinach, crunch it into dust and use their colourful powders to colour your food in a healthy way.
      You can also make homemade 'vegeta' which is our national spice :) Just dehydrate some carrots, celery, parsley and onions, grind them into powder with some salt and you will have 'vegeta' - a powdered version of instant soup cubes which will enrich all of your savoury dishes, especially soups! I can't cook without it! I cannot bear food without vegeta.

  2. I'm sure I have some cat hair stuck to me, so I never show up empty handed. That count, right? lol

    1. I usually do a dessert too, but man, I am so sugared out lately. We bought 10 bags of Halloween candy, and since it rained, we only got about 20 trick-or-treaters this year. I've been chowing down on it all month. The thought of sugar makes me want to puke lol.

    2. 10 bags...wow!! That is a lot. I brought in most of my extra candy to work so that I wouldn't have to be tempted - I kept enough, but I am down 21 pounds since May, so didn't want to backtrack any more if I could help it!
