Appetizer Essentials: Yummy Stuffed Olives

Andy Anderson !


I do a lot of appetizers… some uber fancy, like butter-sautéed crab in Pâte Brisée cups, but, when I make this one, it really gets gobbled up.

The filling; along with the cream cheese, is a perfect compliment to the saltiness of the green olives, and the cayenne gives it just enough of a kick to make it unforgettable.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
