By: Sheila Reynolds

This baked green olives recipe is a great Spanish tapas inspired appetizer you can impress your friends with at your next gathering. They have a wonderful olive taste you’ll love with the great crisp of the bread coating.


1 loaf stale bread, ground into crumbs
1 jar green olives, drained and patted dry (no pits)
¼ cup flour
1 egg, beaten
2 to 3 tbs. olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Salt and pepper, to taste


1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. Combine the bread crumbs with olive oil until just moist. Season with salt and pepper. Dredge the olives in flour, then the egg wash, then the olive oil breadcrumb mixture. Arrange on a baking sheet.
3. Drizzle with additional olive oil and bake until lightly brown, about 15 to 20 minutes, turning halfway through. Skewer with toothpicks before serving.
