Happy New Year!

4 01 2012

Hi everyone! Wow! this is my first post in 2012! One of my New Years resolutions was to post more, but we’ll see how that works out ;). Here’s a recipe that I made for New Years Eve that everyone loved, and I’m proud to say that it is something else on Recipe Quest! Fried Olives! Warning: not for people who are trying to be healthier as a New Years Resolution.

Fried Olives

Green or Black Olives (if they’re green or calamata, I would suggest stuffing with a cheese or other food that lowers the saltiness of theĀ  olive)


eggs (depending on how many olives you’re frying)


oil (for frying, I used canola)


Pat the olives dry with a paper towel, and pour the flour, egg(s) and breadcrumbs into seperate bowls.

Heat the oil in a skillet on the stove.

Dip the olives into the flour, then the eggs, and finally the breadcrumbs. Repeat if desired.

Fry the olives. It only takes a minute or two for the olives to develop a crispy coating.

Place the olives on a paper towel. Wait a couple minutes until they’re cooled, and enjoy!
