As part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias®, I created these Rosemary and Olive Oil Cornbread Bites using STAR Usage Pairings Olive Oil.
Looking for the perfect – easy! – appetizer for your next holiday gathering? These Rosemary and Olive Oil Cornbread bites are just that. A savory cornbread is paired with blue cheese and kalamata olives to create the essence of a cheese plate in a single bite.
A great recipe starts with great ingredients and this recipe is no different. A quality olive oil is necessary to lend the fruity flavor necessary for the cornbread to be something extraordinary. On the shelves at Walmart, STAR Usage Pairings Olive Oil makes selecting the right olive oil easy. There are three distinct and different olive oils, each for a different use :
For this meatless recipe, the Arebequina oil was the right choice for its very smooth, slightly almond flavor, with touches of green apple.
After you’ve made the cornbread and cut it into cubes, it’s time to gather the remaining ingredients and prepare to assemble.
A cube of savory cornbread, topped with blue cheese and then topped with a kalamata olive. Perfect. These appetizers look time consuming but they’re so quick and easy to put together, my five year old could help with the process.
The end result is a cheese plate in a single bite – salty olive, creamy cheese and subtly sweet and fruity cornbread. Sure to please anyone you serve them to.
