Roasted Almond and Cream Cheese-Stuffed Green Olives

Yesterday, I wrote about an amazing new cookbook; Pam Anderson’s Perfect One-Dish Dinners: All You Need for Easy Get-Togethers.  Here is the appetizer I served prior to presenting my family with Pam Anderson’s Cassoulet-Style Italian Sausages and White Beans. I knew my mom would thoroughly enjoy this appetizer since she has a love for all olives. This was super easy to make, and very tasty. I would have never thought to put almonds, cream cheese, and olives together! All three ingredients are a match made in heaven!

Prep: 10 minutes
Serves: 2 dozen

  • 1 jar Spanish Queen Colossal Olives
  • 24 roasted salted almonds
  • 1 block cream cheese

1. Remove pimento from each olive and cut a thin sliver off the bottom of each olive so that it will stand up. 

2. Scrape an almond tip over cream cheese {to pick up a generous 1/4 tsp}.
3. Stuff almond into olive with cream-cheese tip pointing up. Set on serving tray and repeat with remaining olives.
