These became popular in the '60's and are still good today. Bet you can't eat just one! Prep time includes 20 minutes of flash freezing.
- 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2 cup soft butter
- 1 cup unsifted all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- 1 jar stuffed green olive
- Mix together all the ingredients except the olives.
- It will be a thick mixture.
- Drain at least 48 stuffed green olives.
- Wrap approximately 1 teaspoon of the cheese mixture around each olive, to completely cover it.
- Flash freeze covered olives at least 20 minutes.
- Store in a freezer bag until ready to serve.
- Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 400F for about 15 minutes.
The only problem I had with this recipe was my fault. I tried to used margerine instead of butter. Bad idea. This is not the one to cut the fat on. They melted into puddles. Tasted okay but looked kind of funny. I will make again the right way.
My family loves olives, but wasn't a big fan of this recipe. It was fun to make though, thanks for posting.
