This cheddar, olive, and pepper dip from the Yankee Magazine Archives (April 1955) uses plenty of shredded sharp cheddar cheese, which perfectly pairs with green pepper and stuffed olives for a spreadable dip with an addictive cheesy taste.

  • 2 small green peppers
  • 1 cup stuffed olives
  • 1 pound (16 ounces) sharp cheddar cheese, freshly grated
  • 2 hard cooked eggs
  • 2 tablespoons diced onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Remove the stem, pith, and seeds from the peppers and cut into 4 sections each. Combine the peppers, olives, cheese, and hard cooked eggs into the blender or food processor and pulse to combine.

Add onion, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pulse a few more times until well combined.

Transfer to a bowl and chill to ripen and mellow the flavor.

Serve with potato chips, crackers, or vegetables.
