    Units: US | Metric

    For the coating


    1. 1
      If using unpitted olives, pit them with an olive pitter (or cherry pitter) to keep them intact.
    2. 2
      Place the onion, garlic, ham, parsley, olive oil and cayenne in a food processor and pulse on and off until everything is pureed and very creamy and smooth.
    3. 3
      Remove to a bowl.
    4. 4
      Using a pastry bag outfitted with a nozzle small enough to fit into the cavity opening of the olive, stuff each olive with the filling.
    5. 5
      Spread the flour onto one plate and the breadcrumbs onto another.
    6. 6
      Heat about half an inch of olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat.
    7. 7
      Roll the olives in the flour, then in the egg, and finally into the breadcrumbs.
    8. 8
      Fry until the breadcrumbs have turned golden.
    9. 9
      Remove, place on paper towels to drain momentarily and serve.

      Sorry we didn't care for these at all. It was fun trying a really different way to eat olives.

      Oh my stares!! Evelyn this has to be the best recipe I made off Zaar this year. I followed the recipe to T except I left out the ham. When I served theese little gems to DH he said delicious then he asked "how did you the chicken like this"Lol. Hats off to you Evelyn for this unique recipe, It will be served many many times in this household from now on, it complements arabic mezze dishes very well.
