Cheddar Olive Appetizers


Deep-fried and cheesy, these Cheddar Olive Appetizers are covered in an ooey, gooey cheese mixture, then deep-fried to golden crispiness for the perfect pop-able appetizer bites that you can serve at any celebratory social event or dinner party. Serve this appetizer with your favorite dip, such as ranch or a dill yogurt dip, or even just serve them on their own, because they're so good they don't even really need a sauce.

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375° F

In a large bowl, blend together cheese and butter with electric mixer. Add flour and paprika; mix well.

Shape 1 tablespoon of cheese mixture around each olive, dipping hands in flour, if necessary, to prevent sticking.

Arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake 10 to 15 minutes, until golden.

Remove from baking sheet and serve immediately.
