As I sat shivering inside my cold apartment wondering what ever happened to global warming, I tried to think of a tasty excuse to warm up the kitchen with an oven-baked treat. I finally settled on these baked olive cheese balls. Imagine a plump green olive nestled in a slightly spicy and crispy cheese pastry. For a maximum burst of flavor, I suggest you use an extra old Cheddar cheese. I'm quite certain you could substitute small sautéed button mushrooms for the olives. Better yet, double this recipe and make both.
