Parmesan Baked Olives - Easy Appetizer!

Introduction: Parmesan Baked Olives - Easy Appetizer!

About: Mostly harmless

a crunchy shell of parmesan cheese filled with olives - doesn't that sound delicious?

- it certainly is!

Spoil your guests with this impressive, but easy to make fingerfood.

comes great with a glass of red wine or just as a snack for itself.

Only a few ingredients, about 30 minutes of your time

and your taste buds will be thrilled! - that's a promise!

Step 1: Ingredients

just a few ingredients:

24 big olives - if you only can find small ones, you'll need about 30 to 35, all olives are great: black, green, stuffed ones, marinated - whatever you prefer.

80g (2,82oz ) parmesan, freshly grated, other hard cheese will also do

1 tsp chilipowder

2 tbsp soft butter

90g (3,17oz) all purpose flour

2 tbsp cold water

Step 2: Parmesan Meets Butter

combine parmesan, soft butter and chili powder - if you are sensitive to spicy food, start with 1/2 tsp and try the dough later.

use a spoon or fork and some pressure, until everything is well blended.

Step 3: Kneading

knead in flour and water

until the dough feels smooth

if its crumbly, add a little more water.

form an even roll of the parmesan dough.

Step 4: Cutting

cut the parmesan roll into 24 equal sized parts ( that's for big olives, if you have smaller ones, you want to cut 30 to 35 pieces)

to do so:

  1. cut the roll first in half ( 2 pieces)
  2. cut the halves in half ( 4 pieces)
  3. once more in half ( 8 pieces)
  4. cut every piece in 3 parts

Step 5: Cover the Olives

flatten one dough piece, with your fingers

place one olive in it and form the dough around it lika a blanket

close the ends with a little pressure - moisten your finger with a dab of water if it won't close.

proceed until all olives are covered.

Step 6: Baking

place the olives on a baking tray covered with baking paper.

bake about 15 to 20 minutes at 200°C (393°F )

until the parmesan shell is golden brown.

Let cool on the baking tray

It is rewarding to wait until the next day before eating - if you are not that patient, wait at least until the olives are cooled down to room temperature - even if it's very tempting to try the olives right away :)

Step 7: Enjoy!

Well that was easy - but soooooooo good!

let me know when you tried this delicious snack!

~I hope you enjoyed your stay~
