Stuffed Fried Olives 

Stuffed olives prepared with yummy Del Monte olives encased in two different cheesy and spicy layers and fried to golden perfection are bite-sized wonders! Serve it with some marinara sauce and watch your guests go ooh la la!


15 Del Monte Stuffed Olives
3/4 cup Boiled & Mashed Potato
1/4 cup Breadcrumbs
1 TBSP Mixed Herbs Seasoning
1 TBSP Red Chilli Flakes
1/4 TBSP Salt
1/4 cup White Flour
1/4 cup Processed Cheese
1 Egg
- Oil for frying


  1. In a bowl, mix boiled potato, salt, 1/4 cup bread crumb and mixed herbs seasoning and combine it well. Add a dash of chilli flakes because what’s life without some spice?

  2. Now this next step might get a little messy. To make a thick batter for the outer coating, mix grated processed cheese, whole egg and white flour and 1/4 cup of water. Keep this aside for later.

  3. Time to add that olive punch! Divide the potato mixture into 15 parts (whew!) and flatten each portion. Place a Del Monte Stuffed Olive in it and cover it with potato mixture from all sides.

  4. Wet your hands a little and spread the flour and cheese batter in the palm of your hands. One by one, drop these in hot oil. Be careful as it might splash.

  5. Deep fry till these till they are golden brown and serve with some spicy marinara sauce or basil pesto. Mmm! Looks tempting right?

Here’s a little something to keep in mind. Don’t add too much salt because olives are salty themselves and the outer cheese covering is salty too.
