Get as many olives you want, no pits. I like the olive bars in high end grocers. And yes, the ones stuffed with garlic, cheese, and pimento WORK AWESOME!
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup bread crumb
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp red chili powder
1 cup olive oil
fresh ground black pepper
2 eggs, beaten
Put the olives in the freezer 30 minutes before use
beat the eggs, pour on a plate the bread crumbs and crack black pepper, pour on another plate the flour, garlic powder and chili pepper.
dredge the olives first in the flour, then dip in the egg, and coat in the bread crumbs.
heat the olive oil in a small pot
when the oil is heated, drop two to three olives into the oil. fry until brown. place fried olives on paper towels to absorb the excess oil.
I put a side of asiago chunks and small slices of prosciutto for people to enjoy with the olives.
