Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Black olives are stuffed with a seasoned beef and pork mixture, breaded and deep fried.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook ground beef and ground pork until evenly browned.
  • Drain meats. Mix in Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion, parsley flakes, Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. Continue cooking over medium high heat 1 to 2 minutes, until thoroughly blended.
  • Beat eggs in a small bowl. Place Italian-style dried bread crumbs in a small bowl. Stuff the olives with the meat mixture. Dip the stuffed olives into the eggs, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place coated olives on a flat surface and let them sit for 10 minutes.
  • Heat vegetable oil in the deep fryer or large, heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Repeat the process of dipping each olive into the egg and bread mixture.
  • In small batches, fry the olives 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
