We had a death in our congregation this week. After the memorial Saturday afternoon, we served refreshments, both sweet and savoury. These cheese squares are one of my stand-by items for any get-together.
I don’t know if the original “Julia” of the official title of these squares was that Julia, but I tend to think of these as Julie‘s, after my sister who introduced me to them.
JULIA’S CHEESE THINGS
1 pkg refrigerator crescent rolls
4 tbsp. butter
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup broken salad olives
1 onion, chopped
4 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
Dash cayenne pepper or Tabasco sauce
Unwrap crescent rolls and pat into a lightly greased 9×15 pan, smoothing out the seams.
Mix all the remaining ingredients and pour over the dough.
Bake 350◦ for 15-2 minutes, until set.
Cool and cut into squares. May be served warm or cold, but taste best at room temperature.
These freeze well: After cutting in squares, put on cookie sheet to freeze. When frozen, put in freezer bags.
