Baked Olive Cheeseballs

Cuisine: Fusion
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 18 olive cheeseballs
A fun way to enjoy olives!

Turn a boring old jar of olives into a fantastically delicious appetizer, with only a few ingredients. These baked olive cheeseballs smell delicious fresh out of the oven and taste even better. Cooking them is so easy but if you want to speed the process up even further, bake them, freeze them and once you are ready to serve them, simply pop them in the oven for 5 to 8 minutes to reheat them.

 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup extra sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • cayenne pepper to taste
  • 18 stuffed green olives drained, dried
  • paprika
