Olive puff pastry bites

    40 min

    Moreish little bites of olives wrapped in buttery puff pastry. I make them with a variety of olives - stuffed green, plump Kalamata, Provencal - just make sure they are pitted. You can make these ahead, and freeze; allow 30 minutes for the pastry to thaw before baking. Another advantage: the kids like to make them and eat them.

    so easy and delicious! Guests at my party ate them all.Recommend making more than you think you need!  -  28 Dec 2013


    I used crescent rolls and cut the triangles into 3 separate pieces. I tried the phyllo dough but thought it was too difficult to use! I pressed shredded cheddar cheese into the dough. Sprinkled with garlic salt and/or paprika. I tried the pimento stuffed large green olives and I also tried almond stuffed and Jalapeño stuffed olives too. Very easy and my husband really liked them. He didn't think he would. Thanks!  -  12 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These are awesome appetizers....and I don't even like green olives. When I had them at a party...the hostess had added cheddar cheese to the recipe. She finely shredded the cheese and sprinkled over dough and lightly pressed it in b4 rolling around olive. It made these little numbers even more delish!!!  -  25 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
