  • 4 tablespoons sweet butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons Picholine olives, pitted and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Gray salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat a stovetop grill or griddle. Cut the bread in half lengthwise. Hollow out the insides. Set aside

Make compound butter by combining butter, olives and oregano.

Spread and even layer of compound butter on each cut surface of bread. Reassemble the pieces.

Brush outside of bread with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
