C and L's Stuffed Black Olives Recipe
- 4 ounces ground pork
- 4 ounces ground beef
- 1 ½ teaspoons Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ small onion, shredded
- 1 tablespoon dried parsley
- ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 (15 ounce) can black olives, drained
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups Italian-style dried bread crumbs
- 2 cups vegetable oil
step 1: In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook ground beef and ground pork until evenly browned.
step 2: Drain meats. Mix in Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion, parsley flakes, Parmesan cheese, and salt and pepper. Continue cooking over medium high heat 1 to 2 minutes, until thoroughly blended.
step 3: Beat eggs in a small bowl. Place Italian-style dried bread crumbs in a small bowl. Stuff the olives with the meat mixture. Dip the stuffed olives into the eggs, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place coated olives on a flat surface and let them sit for 10 minutes.
step 4: Heat vegetable oil in the deep fryer or large, heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Repeat the process of dipping each olive into the egg and bread mixture.
step 5: In small batches, fry the olives 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
