Dad's Magic Bar Olives Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)

Really excellent and worth the prep time. And you can use other cheeses if you like, make it as spicy as you want by adding chilli flakes and so on and so on. But the recipe is superb just as it stands.

I approached this recipe in a playful mood, and decided to do it like a "Mythbusters" episode. ... My first attempt was with olives a LOT smaller than these. Now, some people will tell you that stuffing small olives is a pain in the neck, but I have have a much lower opinion! ... Ditto for the breading! ... The small olive results were quite good, but not enough oliviness for my taste. ... The larger olives however, were MUCH easier to handle. ... After trying both, I present my findings: #1, the stuffing mixture is good and works in both sorts of olive, and is really quite good without the breading and frying. ... #2, single-coated breading is a waste of time, because subsequent frying (I shallow fry mine - rolling them around as they cook) makes the stuffing ooze out, completely from the smaller olives in some instances (but soaking it all up with a slice of bread and frying that bread was very good). ... #3, double breading is the business, works well and is more than well worth it. ... "Myth" confirmed - delicious, particularly with the larger olives.

These were delicious! I made them exactly as written, but I missed a step (oops!) and breaded them before freezing a first time. No worries, they worked out perfectly! The double breading really ensures a nice crust. I was planning on waiting until hubby got home from work before frying them, but I couldn't wait any longer, lol, and went ahead and did it. My little guy really loved these too! Thanks, Kathleen for another wonderful recipe! :)

This is my recipe- the filling pipes best if you use FINELY grated cheese and I also freeze these after the second breading and fry frozen. Store any un-used olives in the freezer. I also fry in a very small saucepan and use about 1 cup of oil. Enjoy :)
