Directions

Add enough oil to fill a large, heavy Dutch oven a third of the way and heat to 350 degrees F.

Add the sausage, Parmesan, 1 tablespoon parsley and the red pepper flakes to a bowl and mix well. Add to a piping bag with a plain tip.

Drain the olives and dry them very well with paper towels or a clean tea towel. Pipe the sausage filling into each olive.

Add the flour to a casserole dish and season with salt and pepper. In a second casserole dish, beat the eggs. In a third casserole dish, add the breadcrumbs, the remaining 1 tablespoon parsley, season with salt and pepper and whisk together.

Dredge each stuffed olive first through the flour, shaking to remove any excess, then through the egg and then into the breadcrumbs. Pack the breadcrumbs around each olive if necessary. Add to a clean plate. You can refrigerate them now if you are prepping for a party.

Fry the olives, in batches, until golden and crisp and the pork is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.

    I thought these olives were great. Had them for a family BBQ, and everyone loved them. Could not believe olives could be fried and taste so good. Love your show Debi and Gabriele.

    Great idea! Cooked these at Thanksgiving and they were such a hit I only got a couple so I did them again Christmas. Again a big hit. Looks like these will be a regular at family gatherings.
