Serve these tiny olive breads as a pre-dinner snack with a glass of wine or a beer or as a part of a finger food buffet. They will also make a great addition to a picnic or a champagne brunch. If you are preparing for a large party and cooking a lot of food, think ahead and bake these olive balls 3 days in advance. Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Crisp in preheated oven (200) for 3 minutes before serving.
