Cream Cheese/Olive Spread

My neighbor has made this for me for the past 2 Christmas's and I finally asked for the recipe so I can have it more often. If you like green olives, you will like this spread.

1 Pkg. of Cream Cheese (room temp.)
1/2 cup Parmasan (sp?) cheese
2/3 cups of green olives
1 Tablespoon horseradish

Form into a log and wrap it in clear wrap and refrigerate overnite. Unwrap and roll in very thin slices of dried beef. Serve with different types of crackers/triscuits.

Enjoy.

That looks GOOD!

A good friend, now gone, made one with braunsweiger, cream cheese and sliced green olives. You might like that one, too.

I've made this spread using thin slices of deli ham instead of beef. I don't use the horseradish but that can only make it better. These little guys go in a hurry. No matter how many I make they're GONE!! I definitely will add the horseradish next time. Thanks for the tip.

That's sort of a "blast from the past" for me! One of my favorite lunchtime sandwiches as a kid was Cream Cheese & Sliced Green Olives on White Bread.

I make something similar with the cream cheese and chopped green olives. I smear it on a flour tortilla, roll it up, and then slice it into little "rounds". I've never added the horseradish but I will now! Thanks for this!

I like olive sandwiches - white bread spread with cream cheese - then olives lined up across one end - then rolled up and secured with a toothpick. Chill and slice. They are so pretty when sliced, especially if you use pimento stuffed olives.

My mom's friend makes a liverwurst spread with cream cheese and ONIONS. Yum.
