ZESTY STUFFED BLACK AND GREEN OLIVES

These are always a big hit at parties. Pair with an Italian meal or serve alone. Guests won't believe the stuffing is plain cream cheese!

1 large can Pitted Black Olives
1 jar Pitted Green Olives
8 oz Cream Cheese (softened)
4 tbsp Zesty Italian Dressing
3 tbsp Fresh Parsley (chopped)
 

Use your Olive Express to PICK UP the cream cheese, PLACE the Olive Express into an olive, and SQUEEZE the Olive Express together to release the filling into the olive.

Place stuffed olives on a serving plate, drizzle with dressing, and sprinkle with parsley.

STUFFED CHERRY TOMATOES

Let your imagination be your guide! Whether tomatoes are round or pear-shaped, use your Olive Express to stuff these tiny gems with any of the scrumptious fillings. These are great to pair with any of our stuffed olives!

Fillings accommodate twenty-four (24) cherry tomatoes. We like to use a mixture of red and yellow tomatoes. Cut top off cherry tomato. Scoop out pulp with a small spoon or mellon baller and discard pulp. Place the tomatoes, cut sides down, on paper towels and let drain for 15 minutes. Prepare filling. Use your Olive Express to PICK UP the filling, PLACE the Olive Express into a cherry tomato, and SQUEEZE the Olive Express together to release the filling into the tomato. Bon Appetite!

Fried Stuffed Olives

Stuffing juicy olives with the Olive Express using all the scrumptious combinations leads to fantastic results. But breading and frying them after they've been stuffed are a pure taste sensation!

The most exciting thing about these olives is that once fried, they all look identical; which means that you never know what filling you are getting until you dive into the plate. A classic bar snack commonly found in Naples, fried stuffed olives are simply superb with a rich, red wine...or with a glass of bubbly!

Instructions accommodate about 40 large pitted green or black olives...here's what you do:

Fill three bowls from left to right with:

1/2 cup Flour
2 large Eggs
3/4 cup Bread Crumbs
 

Using your Olive Express, stuff the olives with your choice of fillings.

Spear a stuffed olive with a toothpick and twirl it in the flour.

Swirl it in the egg.

Roll it in the bread crumbs.

Use a fork to pop the olive off the toothpick onto a plate.

Repeat until all of the olives are coated.

Sweet Treats

These little desserts look gorgeous and taste fabulous! Perfect for a tea or shower ...or when that special-someone comes to visit.

CREAM CHEESE AND PECAN STUFFED STRAWBERRIES

Use your Olive Express to PICK UP the filling, PLACE the Olive Express into a strawberry, and SQUEEZE the Olive Express together to release the filling into the strawberry.
