This deceptively fast and easy olive beer bread recipe with green onions and cheese uses Linsday Organic Kalamata olives and tastes amazing! (Jump directly to the recipe.)

There are a few “secret ingredient” weapons in my pantry. Most chefs will talk about how fish sauce adds a subtle umami punch to everything (like my not-bolognese sauce). Pastry chefs will occasionally add milk powder to bake goods giving it an extra boost of goodness (like my cookies and cream cookies). But both of those specialty ingredients are exactly that. Specialty. My go-to secret ingredient weapon is something much more basic and standard. Olives! Like Lindsay’s Kalamata olives which take a basic beer bread and turn it into something amazing ridiculously good.

I’ll be completely honest and tell you that I have a habit of skipping those “easy and fast” recipes that I see all over the place and going directly to the long and laborious recipes that I know will give me maximum flavor. Why spend $4 on a product when I can spend 12 hours in the kitchen and $25 for ingredients and equipment to get the same thing? Ha! But I have to admit that beer bread is one of the few things that I absolutely adore that falls into the “easy and fast” category. And when I came up with an olive beer bread recipe, I knew that I had a winner.

Nothing is as tasty and as easy as beer bread! Beer bread has the ease of quick bread (think Irish Soda bread) but the yeasty flavor of tradition risen bread (thanks to the yeast in the beer). And though this beer bread version may take a few more steps (chopping the olives and green onions) that’s really all the extra labor involved. Trust me when I say that this beer bread recipe needs to be made.

It does seem full of flavor. I usually make yeast bread rather than quick bread and I’m already thinking of using my sourdough to include your ingredients. What a yummy combination. Hope you had a good summer. Baking weather is coming up!!

I LOVE beer bread and the crumb of this one is perfection. Agree that olives make everything better, especially kalamatas. And I’m with you on zeroing in on the most ridiculously labor intensive recipes ever, haha!
