Anyone who is looking for a unique new appetizer to serve for the holidays will delight in Trader Joe's newest creation, Fried Olive Bites, which can be found in the frozen section of stores. While olives are usually sold jarred or fresh at an in-store antipasto bar, Trader Joe's is introducing a different take on olives with "cheese-stuffed olives."
The product is prepared by using pitted and finely chopped green Castelvetrano and dark Kalamata olives, which are mixed and used to form a "dough." With this mixture, cheeses are stuffed into the bites, which are then lightly battered, breaded and then fried until crispy. Once prepared at home, these olive bites are said to retain their crispiness.
