Olive Cheese Melts
1 cup ripe olives, chopped - I recommend canned and not deli (experience talking here - they were waaay too salty, but suit yourself)
1/3 cup scallions, chopped
1.5 cups old cheddar, grated (I go for almost 2 cups)
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 tsp curry powder
8 English Muffins, split
Mix first 5 ingredients together, spread on split Muffins, cut in 1/4's.
Place on cookie sheet. At this point you can either pop them in the freezer and then transfer to a bag or bake at 400 for 10 min.
I bag them 8 to a sandwich bag so as to take what I need. Cooking from frozen is about the same timing as fresh. You know your oven.
Many recipes you see on the internet call for 1/4 or 1/2 tsp salt... DON'T! olives and cheese are plenty salty enough.
