DIRECTIONS

  • If using unpitted olives, pit them with an olive pitter (or cherry pitter) to keep them intact.
  • Place the onion, garlic, ham, parsley, olive oil and cayenne in a food processor and pulse on and off until everything is pureed and very creamy and smooth.
  • Remove to a bowl.
  • Using a pastry bag outfitted with a nozzle small enough to fit into the cavity opening of the olive, stuff each olive with the filling.
  • Spread the flour onto one plate and the breadcrumbs onto another.
  • Heat about half an inch of olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat.
  • Roll the olives in the flour, then in the egg, and finally into the breadcrumbs.
  • Fry until the breadcrumbs have turned golden.
  • Remove, place on paper towels to drain momentarily and serve.
