Tapenade (I made much too much)

I really went overboard in making tapenade for a pot luck the other day. Do you think it would freeze well? Gotta do something with it. Any suggestions would be welcome.

I don't know if it would freeze well, but I'd cover it with olive oil, refrigerate and use it up within the next couple of weeks. A big Muffuletta sandwich comes to mind. Yumm Yumm

I've never frozen olives. Maybe take a bit, freeze it, and see how you like it before freezing the whole shebang. Though come to think of it, frozen pizzas frequently have olives, and they freeze just fine.

Just thought of something else......I bet it would be great over pasta or slap it on a pizza crust. Nope, there would be no need to freeze it for me.

You could also use it to stuff chicken breasts or pork chops. Perhaps mix it with a little feta cheese first.

I like the pasta idea, similar to pesto.

If you are a baker you could make some yeast dough, pie crust or even frozen puff pastry, roll it out, spread it with tapenade, roll it up, slice it and bake it to make some nice appetizers.

Just my guess, but most of us choose to make too much rather than too little for guests.
I'll never forget a barbeque potluck cookout, where the host said he said he would provide the meat if everyone provided the sides. The meat ran out long before the line. I would have hung my head in shame, but that's me.

Aha! I understand. You are so right. I would have been so embarrassed.
