  • 1/2 cup Green Olives (chopped)
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Eggs (beaten)

How to make Italian Stuffed Olives:
  • Cook the pork and chicken breast in tomato gravy.
  • Cool the meats and separate them from the tomato gravy. Grind the meats in a food processor.
  • Add the remaining ingredients to the ground meat, except green olives, beaten eggs, flour, bread crumbs and olive oil. Mix the ingredients well and refrigerate for an hour.
  • Take the mixture out of the refrigerator and shape into balls about the size of a small walnut.
  • Put half of an olive on each side of the rolled ball.
  • Flour each meat ball and dip it in beaten egg. Finally, dip in bread crumbs.
  • Fry the balls in olive oil, until golden brown in color. Don't cook them through, since the meats have already been cooked.
  • Serve the stuffed olives warm.
