An aperitif without olives is like a summer without sunshine. Unthinkable!
I absolutely need my little bowl of olives for me to be really happy. Green or black, it doesn’t matter.
For a change, I suggest you garnish pretty green olives with a goat cheese stuffing and then bread them. It’s completely different. Olive lovers will be delighted and those who usually shun them will easily be tempted.
150 large pitted green olives
40g goat cheese (fresh)
1 to 2 tbsp liquid cream (if needed)
2 tbsp flour
2 to 3 eggs
Mash the cheese with a fork.
Add a little cream so as to have a supple texture. It will be necessary to adapt the quantity according to whether the cheese is more or less fresh.
Pour the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a small smooth nozzle.
Top the olives with the garnish.
Pass them in the flour, then in the beaten and seasoned eggs, then in the breadcrumbs.
Pass again in the egg then in the breadcrumbs.
Heat a small oil bath.
Brown the olives.
Enjoy warm with homemade ketchup (recipe here)
To finish: I chose green olives this time, but black olives will also be perfect.
During the month of August, my publications will certainly be more disorganized than in normal times. Above all, it will be simple recipes, perfect for the summer. The rhythm will return with the start of the school year…
