Grain-Free, Gluten-Free 💚
Happy Weekend, Friends!
I can’t even express to you how delicious these baked cheddar + olive balls are! All I can say is that there is a lot of salty-cheesy-goodness going on here. But even that doesn’t do them justice! They are difficult to categorize—because at first they seem like a sophisticated appetizer to be savored with a martini, and yet at the same time they have that guilty-pleasure quality, of say- a plate of gooey cheese fries.
It’s perfect really, because they can suit any occasion, you can totally dress them up or down. Cocktail party or Super Bowl! (And yes, sadly we are already thinking of the super bowl, I am married to the world’s greatest football fan—but I wouldn’t have it any other way).💘
And great news, you can make these ahead of time—-we love to make two batches + pop them in the freezer. That way you’re all set for company and you can serve them fresh out of the oven.
Tips For Today:
-As always, reading the recipe + instructions once through before baking will allow you to fully enjoy the process without the stress.
-Be sure to drain your olives well, you’ll want them mostly dry before covering them with dough.
-One batch yields 26, you’ll need less dough than you might think for each olive, I was surprised how far a little dough can go! 🙂
-Do make sure to chill your dough covered olives after they are formed prior to baking, as this will help their shape and texture.
