These blue cheese stuffed olives are crispy, briny, and the perfect cocktail snack!
  • 1 dozen large, pitted green olives
  • 3 oz. crumbled gorgonzola cheese, room temperature
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg + 1 Tlbs. water
  • ½ cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • Canola oil for frying
  1. Stuff olives with blue cheese.
  2. Set up three small bowls. Fill first bowl with flour, second with egg and water, third with breadcrumbs. Season flour with salt and pepper. Whisk egg and water together until combined. Season breadcrumbs with salt.
  3. Coat olives in flour, pat off excess. Dip in egg, then coat in breadcrumbs. Dip each olive in egg again, followed by breadcrumbs.
  4. Add enough oil to a small pot to go up about two inches. Heat oil to 350 degrees. Once oil comes to temperature, fry olives in batches until golden brown on all sides, about 1 minute. Do not overcrowd the pot, you should do about four olives per batch.
  5. Drain on paper towels.
