Pan Fried Stuffed Green Olives

Carol Perricone


My family loves olives, especially stuffed. Whenever I go to the Specialty Store, the stuffed olives are so expensive. Sometimes as much as $10 a container.
So I decided to make them myself. Here is what I did. My sister told me her girlfriend actually went one step further and pan fried the olives. So I tried that. They were a hit!
I hope you give them a try, you will not be disappointed.
