Baked Cheddar Olives Recipe

Step 1

Drain olives and pat dry with towels. Combine cheese and butter in a bowl. Add flour and cayenne and blend until well mixed.

Bake the wrapped olives on a baking sheet in the middle of a preheated 400f oven for 15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm. Makes 24 olives.
