Olive Cheese Nuggets Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
I used this as a base to use up some chopped green olives and pimentos. I used stick margarine and instead of melting it completely, put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Instead of paprika, I used 1 tsp. chili powder, a shake or two of red pepper flakes, and 1 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce. I mixed in 3/4 cup drained chopped green olives, rolled the dough into small balls (like making cookies), and baked for 10 minutes. The dough is a bit crumbly and dry, but I like the baked balls. They aren't very spicy hot, but each one has a slightly different dominant flavor. I do think they taste better and crumble less after cooling, though.

These were just okay...nothing spectacular. I followed the recipe exactly and found regardless of how small I made these you couldn't taste the olive very well. They were a nice change from our traditional olives filled with squirt cheese, but I'm not sure I'll make them again. I had about 20 teaspoons of mixture left after I finished with the can of olives. I hated to throw all that out so I added some garlic powder and rolled the remaining balls without the olive. These were quite tasty and went over very well. I will probably make the garlic cheddar mixture again and possibly add some chopped olives to the mixture next time.

Great gluten free - I made this recipe using large double-stuffed green olives, stuffed with garlic and jalapenos (Tassos brand). Then I made a batch of Chebe bread (tapioca based mix), added the cheese and wrapped them around the olives. The olives are large so the end product is a two-three-biter for most people. I made a batch this morning to test for a party tonight. Munching on one right now. Yum.

You have to like olives to love these and don't over bake them. When they just turn golden on the bottom they are done. I added cayenne pepper in place of some of the paprika (my mother in law makes these and told me she uses cayenne) and my second batch got a little more cheese since I was grating what was left I just threw it in--maybe an extra 1/4 cup and they were the best ones. These are the best nibble/snack item to make when having drinks or company. Good warm or room temp.

I've made a similar version of these for years and had much success. I would suggest only 1 cup of flour instead. Also, 1/2 tsp. ground mustard is a nice accent. They freeze really well. Bake them straight from the freezer.

I love olives and cheese and had high hopes for this recipe. It was terrible - dry crumbly lumps that tasted almost like Cheez It crackers with the olive lost in the middle. I was very careful to make the balls very small too...May have been better with some sort of sauce, but they ended up in the trash.
