  1. Drain olives well on paper towels. Place Gorgonzola cheese in a pastry bag, or a heavy plastic bag, and squirt into each olive.
  2. Whisk together the eggs and milk; place the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Dip olives in the egg mixture, shake off the excess, and roll in bread crumbs to coat; set aside.
  3. Heat at least 4 inches of oil in a large pot to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Fry olives in hot oil until golden brown and drain on paper towels. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

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 ...

They really don't look that great, but sure do taste awesome! We all fought over the last one! Would make again.

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....

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...
