Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives

Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives5

Well my Almond Stuffed Olives turned out so tasty, I decided that I should try more. Today I chose to stuff my green olives with a nice firm blue cheese. Simply follow the same instructions as before, but stuff the olives with small slices of blue cheese instead. These are perfect for a drink garnishment or a nice afternoon snack.


  • 1 large jar of Queen Olives
  • 1 block of firm Blue Cheese
  • 4 cloves of Garlic, peeled
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives1

  2. If your olives are stuffed with a pimento remove the pimento using a toothpick.
  3. Slice blue cheese into small strips that are about 1inch long and 1/4inch wide; depending on the size of your olives.
  4. Stuff the olive with the blue cheese. Wipe away any excess cheese that sticks out of the olive.
  5. Put olives back in the jar as you go. Add the occasional garlic clove for extra flavor. Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives5
