Author Chews and Brews


  • 1 jar of Matt & Steve's B'n Olives
  • 2 cups shredded old cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter melted


  1. Quarter the B'n Olives carefully, ensuring each quarter holds a piece of the bean. You will need about 36 pieces. Feel free to eat the leftovers - they are delicious on their own!
  2. Mix shredded cheddar and flour together in a bowl. Add melted butter and stir with a fork until mixture turns into a batter.
  3. Take about 1 Tbsp. of the batter and flatten with your hands. Place an olive piece in the middle, and fold batter over olive. Roll with fingers to form a cheese ball with olive piece hidden inside. Repeat until batter is used up; should make about 36 balls.
  4. Place balls on greased cookie sheet, about 1 inch apart, cover with plastic wrap and chill for about an hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake olive cheese balls for 15-20 mins.
  6. Serve hot!
