I saw this recipe on Ricardo & Friends. Looks so yummy and easy to do. I guess that you can try with other olives. I will try with hot pepper stuffed olives. Note : Taste the olives the day before making the recipe. If they are too salty, soak them in cold water for up to 24 hours.
- 12 slices bacon
- 36 oil-packed almond-stuffed green olives (see note)
- With the rack in the middle position, preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- On a cutting board, cut each bacon slice crosswise into 3 equal pieces. Roll an olive in each bacon piece, securing with a toothpick. Place on the baking sheet. Bake until the bacon is nicely browned and crisp 30 to 35 minutes. Drain on paper towels. Serve in a large bowl.
- NOTE : Taste the olives the day before making the recipe. If they are too salty, soak them in cold water for up to 24 hours.
Absolutely delicious! I find it necessary to soak the olives for at least a few hours before. The salt seems to dominate otherwise.
I prefer this with garlic-stuffed olives! Love them!
Although I didn't even try to find almond stuffed olives, I wanted to stay as true to the recipe as I could, so I toasted some almonds, soaked the olives overnight in cold water, & then stuffed them before wrapping them with the bacon! All for some great little tasties! Will be doing these again, for sure! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits]
