Olive Bits

Olive Bites
(48 pieces)


1 pkg. (11 oz.) Refrigerated Bread Sticks
48 large Pimiento-Stuffed Green Olives
1 large Fresh Egg, beaten
3 tbsp. Sesame Seeds


Remove dough from can and separate into 12 strips.  Cut each strip into 4 equal pieces and flatten each piece.  Place an olive in center of each piece of dough and wrap around olive making sure they are completely covered.  Stretch dough if needed and press edges together to seal.  Repeat process with remaining olives and dough.  Spray a rimmed baking sheet.  Place beaten egg and sesame seeds each in a small bowl.  Dip the dough into egg mixture and then into the sesame seeds. Place olive on the baking sheet and repeat process until all are done.  Now place baking sheet into a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 11 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve hot or at room temperature.

Note:               For some variety try using jalapeno and/or garlic stuffed olives as well.  Leave one unseeded or use poppy seed for one type.  That way everyone will know which is which.

Note:               You could also make a cheese dip for the olives.  Just take 1 cup of processed cheese sauce, 3 tbsp. tomato juice and 1/8 tsp. of ground red pepper.  Combine and heat over medium-low heat in a sauce pan.  Remember to stir during heating process.

Note:               They can be made up to 3 hours early and kept at room temperature.
