    Oven Fried Blue Cheese Olives

    Instead of filling the center with blue cheese, we're using a mixture of blue cheese and light cream cheese. And instead of deep frying the olives, we're coating them with canola cooking spray and baking in a hot oven.

    Ingredients

    • 1  15-ounce can jumbo pitted black olives, drained well on paper towels
    • 1 1/2 ounces blue cheese
    • 2 tablespoons light cream cheese
    • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1/3 cup egg substitute
    • 1 cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs
    • canola cooking spray

    Instructions

    Step 1
    Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a 9 x 9-inch baking dish with canola cooking spray. Add blue cheese, light cream cheese and black pepper to a small bowl and blend well with a fork. Using your fingers or a pastry bag, fill each olive with the blue cheese mixture.
    Step 2
    Add egg substitute to a custard cup. Add breadcrumbs to a shallow bowl. Dip olives in the egg mixture then roll in the breadcrumbs to coat well. Place olives in prepared dish and coat the top with canola cooking spray.
    Step 3
    Bake in center of oven for 12-13 minutes or until golden brown. Let them cool, and then serve.
