Have you Tried Deep Fried Olives?

Olives aren't just for martinis anymore! Everyone knows that olives can be eaten straight from the jar and most of us have had them sliced into salads and pastas. . .

But did you know you can deep fry stuffed olives in a simple batter as savory hors d'oeuvres? They would be a great surprise treat for guests at your next dinner party.

This recipe for deep fried olives on The Food Network looks really delicious: Italian Fried Olives

And on I found this one for: Fried Gorgonzola Olives

Both are highly rated by readers so I bet they're really delicious! If you try them come back and leave a comment to let me know how they turned out.

You can batter and fry them or batter and bread then fry them. Either way they'll be a surprise treat for your guests.
