Nothing beats homemade bread. But sometimes you don’t want all the work of kneading for so long. Well, I have a fix. This no knead skillet olive bread! You can have fresh baked, crusty bread with just 5 minutes of work. Yes, trust me, you can!

I have made quite a few recipes with green olives before, so it seemed like just the thing to give this loaf of bread some extra flavor.  Plus plenty of garlic and herbs for to make it perfect for just about any meal.

So back to this no knead skillet olive bread. Years ago when we lived in Iowa my friend had the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day book. I borrowed it and tried quite a few recipes from it. This no-knead bread was one of our favorites, because it was just so easy. Today I gave it a little bit of a makeover thanks to Diethood. She made this bread last year, and when I saw it I knew I had to make it.
