A delectable tangy topping of Cheddar cheese, chopped olives, sun-dried tomatoes with cherry tomatoes - melted on little toasted bread rounds! Perfect for all types of parties, buffets, nibbles, Hors D'oeuvres, starters and aperitif snacks! I make up my toasted bread rounds ahead of time and store them in an airtight tin; the cheese rarebit mixture can also be made ahead, you just need to spread it on top of the toasted bread rounds and then pop them in the oven for 5 to 8 minutes. Perfect, tasty and very elegant! I usually use green olives, as I prefer the flavour when mixed with the cheese and tomatoes - but you could use black olives if you wish. I also use pimento stuffed olives to great effect, I am sure that almond stuffed olives would also be wonderful. Try to use a good quality thick sliced loaf of bread for the toasted bread rounds - it makes such a difference to the finished taste. This recipe is easily doubled or trebled for larger gatherings!
