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. 


  1. What an easy to make appetizer that's sure to please. My mom is also an olive lover. By the way, I'm holding a giveaway on my blog for Orglamix Organic makeup and you're welcome to come by and enter.
