Olives stuffed with cheese

April 25, 2012  •  Category:


Or how to eat olives and cheese in one bite!

Pick a strong goat cheese to offset the pungent taste of the olives; get some pitted olives and a decorating bag with a tiny tube and you can get this fancy appetizer ready in no time!

    I use black olives and stuff them with G.cheese and build a penguine .
    Goat cheese is one of the best cheeses

    It’s funny – I never really thought that I could do this myself, but of course! I love cheese stuffed olives, and now I’m on a mission to create my own!

    What a gorgeous view that is…with the flowers in the foreground!
    For some reason I’ve made olives baked with a dough around them, but never served them simply stuffed like yours. The goat cheese is perfect for the salty olives. Nice quick appetizer, Joumana.

    That looks interesting and easy. A great starter idea. I hardly eat this type of olive. But with cheese, I think I would love it. Thanks very much for sharing.

    C’est au Liban, la dernière photo … On se croirait dans notre région de cannes ! ;o) Bon, je vais me mettre en quête de grosses olives vertes. Ce ne sont pas nos petites niçoises qui se laisseront farcir de fromage … J’aime beaucoup cette idée.

    tout simple pour l’apéro et au moins on sait ce que l’on met dedans si c’est fait maison !
