You will need these items for your authentic dish.
•One and a half pounds of store-bought cheese stuffed olives (but if you can get fresh cheese stuffed olives it will make this dish more flavorful)
•Two medium sized eggs, lightly beaten
•Half a cup of flour
•1/2 cup Plain Breadcrumbs (you can use panko breadcrumbs if you want a crunchier texture)
•1/2 a cup of olive oil for frying (other types of oil can be used, but olive oil brings an authentic Italian flavor)
Drain and wash olives with cool water, then leave them to dry on a paper towel. Fix the ingredients in the right order so you can work systematically. The breadcrumbs, eggs and flour have to be in individual containers, line them along your counter with the breadcrumbs closest to the stove followed by the eggs then the flour. Once the olives are fully dry, the first stage would be to coat them with flour. From the flour, transfer your olives to the container beside it which should be the lightly beaten eggs. After dunking in the eggs, coat it with breadcrumbs and get ready to fry. Fry them in the oil over medium high heat but make sure the oil is hot enough before frying your olives for a less greasy finish. Over medium heat, give the olives a quick fry, just enough to lightly brown the bread coating. Transfer to a paper towel until ready to serve. You can serve this with tomato sauce for an extra kick. Fried Cheese Stuffed Olives is one appetizer your guests will surely love.
