“We used to eat fried olive bites at the State Fair of Texas but they got dropped due to the supplier not supplying them . I came up with my own version to satisfy our craving. Good as is but we like to dip in a creamy Greek dip. These can be made ahead and frozen. Allow to come to room temp approx 30 minutes before frying.”
