Fried Olives

Ingredients
2
cups whole pimiento or garlic-stuffed green olives, drained
2
tablespoons all-purpose flour
2
eggs
1/2
cup seasoned fine dry bread crumbs or panko (Japanese-style) bread crumbs
2
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
 
Dash cayenne pepper
 
Vegetable oil for deep-fat frying

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine olives and flour; toss until olives are evenly coated. In a small bowl, beat eggs lightly. In a medium bowl, combine bread crumbs, cheese, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper.
  2. In a large deep saucepan or deep-fat fryer, heat 1 1/2 inches oil to 350 degrees F. Dip each flour-coated olive into the eggs, then coat evenly with crumb mixture.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, add olives, several at a time, to the hot oil. Fry about 1 1/2 minutes or until outsides are golden brown. Remove olives from hot oil; drain on a plate lined with paper towels. Keep olives warm in the oven while frying the remaining olives.
