I made the fried olives using the following stuffing and it worked great! So I'll give you 5 stars for your fried olive idea!
2 cans colossal size pitted black olives.
4oz. fat free cream cheese.
2 tbls. part skim ricotta cheese.
1 large clove garlic made into a paste with a pinch of kosher salt.
1 tsp. minced jarred jalapenos.
I love gorgonzola cheese and olives seperately, but after trying this, I discovered that I don't like them combined.
Interesting recipe ... we are black olive lovers so we were excited to try this. Not sure what we did wrong, but the cheese didn't stay in them very well. The taste was pretty good, although I guess we aren't huge Gorgonzola cheese fans. We'd like to try these again though with maybe a different type cheese.
This recipe was just OK. The general opinion was that the flavor was alright, but we would have liked a stronger cheese. It's the only fried dish I've served that our friends haven't devoured. Also, the olives were a bit difficult to stuff and the third can of olives was not necessary.
They really don't look that great, but sure do taste awesome! We all fought over the last one! Would make again.
There is a local restaurant that sells fried stuffed olives. I was hoping these would be something similar but they did not turn out well at all. I might try again using a different type of cheese and breading.
