2 Bites

Looking for something different for a quick app for a ladies lunch i hosted, i came across this unique recipe and decided to give it a shot. I love allrecipes (foodtv and cookinglight) for the real life feedback you get from cooks who have made these recipes before. Here's a perfect example where reading reviews before you make the dish really comes in handy. Although highly rated, the recipe as written is FLAWED.

Baked Cheese Olives

Again, the recipe is flawed. You must add 2 Tbs of water to actually make the batter. Also, i used Queen Olives, and found that i needed to double the batter recipe to get all 24 olives wrapped. Though the recipe isn't written correctly, with some minor adjustments, it was a really great recipe.

I had to get all clever and put them in my olive dish. Cause well, it IS an olive, and what the heck, i'm going to pull out this odd dish at every opportunity i get. :P

I LOVED these, loved them!!! Biting into the cheese biscuit and finding a little olive treasure tucked inside is so much fun! Once you fix the error in the recipe, it's a cinch to make and as a bonus, you can make these in advance and freeze them. So on party day it's one less thing to do. LOVE THAT! :)
