Stuffed olives appetizer

Stuffed olives appetizer

The olives are cut in half, if they do not have seeds. I didn't find it and I had to take them out. If you still can't find it (without seeds), choose the largest ones.

The filling is made:

Bring water to a boil. When it boils, add salt and egg, lightly with a spoon, so as not to break. Boil for 10 minutes and leave to cool.

Then cut in half and remove the yolk. Butter at room temperature mix with finely grated cheese, boiled egg yolk and a pinch of salt. With this mixture, fill the olives.

6. Add the spinach, mix, then gradually pour the milk, so as not to overdo it and the dough is too liquid.

7. Incorporate the oil and the dough is ready. Let it rest for 10-15 minutes (it can stay for even 1-1.5 hours).

8. Bake the pancakes on a dry pan, over medium heat, until they stick to one side, then turn them on the other side for just a few seconds.

9.Cut the herring fillet into small cubes, add the cream cheese, mayonnaise and chopped greens. Mix the filling very well.

10.Add 1 tablespoon of filling in the middle of the pancake, gather the edges, forming a bag, which you tie with green onion thread.

The pancakes are very tasty and elastic, and the filling is incredibly good!

Chuck Hughes' recipe for breaded olives stuffed with meat and breaded olives stuffed with gorgonzola cheese


24 large, pitted olives (you can use black olives or green olives, as you wish)
65 g of flour
120 g of breadcrumbs
2 beaten eggs
250 ml of oil
Salt and pepper

For the filling:
a tablespoon of unsalted butter
a finely chopped salad
200 g of minced veal
salt and pepper
120 ml of beef soup
a handful of grated Parmesan cheese
half a bunch of freshly chopped parsley
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
1 or
120 g of gorgonzola cheese, crushed

Method of preparation:

Olive preparation:
Put the olives in a bowl and cover with water. Until the filling is ready, let them soak for about 30 minutes to remove excess salt. Then drain, rinse and dry well on a paper towel.

Melt the butter in a pan at medium temperature and cook the salad until translucent. Add the veal, salt and pepper and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the beef broth and let all the ingredients simmer for about 10 minutes or until the liquid has evaporated.
Transfer the meat mixture to a bowl and allow to cool slightly. Then add the parmesan, parsley, breadcrumbs and egg. Season with salt and pepper, mix well and set everything aside.

Olive filling:
Start at one end and cut each olive in a spiral (with a small knife, with a thin blade) until you reach the other end.

Take a little meat mixture in your hand and form a ball. Wrap the meatball in an olive spiral. Press lightly so that the olive returns to its original shape. Fill half the amount of olives with the meat mixture, then do the same with gorgonzola cheese.

Last step:
Pass the olives through the flour, then through the egg, then through the breadcrumbs. To prevent the filling from leaking when frying, repeat twice to get a thicker crust.

Heat the olive oil in a pan. Fry the olives in oil until golden, for about a minute and a half. Take them out and let them drain on a paper towel.

You can also fill the olives with Telemea cheese or feta cheese, with creamy goat cheese mixed with a little lemon peel, garlic and basil, you can add pine seeds in the cheese mixture or, for a vegetarian version of olive bread, you can use for filling chickpea puree with basil, olive oil and lemon and orange peel.

Eggs stuffed in sauce

Prepare a pot of water, which you boil. Add a tablespoon of vinegar to the water. When it boils, put the washed eggs and let them boil for 15 minutes.

Then drain the water and pour cold water over it. Leave to cool then peel carefully.

With a thin knife cut the eggs into two equal parts. Gently remove the yolk and place in a bowl. Pass it well with a fork.

Put over the yolks, in equal parts, mascarpone and pate. Add a teaspoon of mustard, salt and pepper to taste. Blend everything with a blender. If the composition is too hard / dry, add a little sour cream, until you get the right consistency for filling the egg whites.

Fill the egg white halves with the obtained paste and place them with the filling down on a plate.

Prepare the sauce in a bowl, mixing the cream and yogurt in equal parts. Season with salt and nutmeg and pour over the eggs.

Sprinkle with paprika and chopped onion tails, then keep cold and eat in moderation, along with other favorite appetizers.

Pancakes stuffed with olive paste

Today's recipe for savory pancakes is an appetizer idea that was born by pure chance. I had made preparations for the New Year's Eve meal, including the recipe for pancakes with cheese and smoked salmon from which I had a few unfilled pancakes left.

I had also made the yogurt appetizer cake with a few pitted olives and too many ready-cut vinegar donuts. So it was not very difficult to invent on the spot the recipe for pancakes filled with olive paste, the success of which I can be honest I did not foresee.

My pancakes have been very popular and I think I will repeat them many times from now on.

I make olive paste very often, especially during fasting periods and we serve it for breakfast. It is made extremely fast, practically in 5 minutes it is ready, it is delicious and nutritious.

I leave below the olive paste recipe in video format.

To the pancakes from today's recipe, I also added a boiled egg yolk to the olive paste, for a creamier consistency.

But if you want a fasting dish, you can exclude egg yolk and make pancake sheets from fasting dough.
