Update your readers! http://feeds.feedburner.com/howsweeteats/smSp

Many of the appetizers I have posted have been pretty darn simple. And quick. This one takes the cake, though.

Speaking of past appetizers, have you missed any?

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Fresh Spinach and Artichoke Dip with Bacon

Baked Brie with Cranberry, Pancetta, and Spiced Pecans

Fruit Salsa

Cinnamon Sugared Roasted Almonds

Firecracker Shrimp

Bruschetta

It doesn’t get much simpler than these olives and gorgonzola. And it is super classy, impressive, and deliciously mouth-watering.

I buy a container of seasoned, pitted olives.

After eating my weight in olives, I stuff a few with crumbled gorgonzola for the hungry guests.

So thoughtful, I know.

These are always crowd pleasers. The soft, creamy gorgonzola combined with the salty olive makes for the perfect combination.

This appetizer is also a nice size – guests can thoroughly enjoy them without stuffing themselves before the main course.

Gorgonzola Stuffed Olives

Ingredients:

  • 1 container large, seasoned, pitted olives
  • 3-4 tablespoons crumbled gorgonzola

Directions:

Make sure all pits are out of olives. Fill the olive opening with one large or a few small gorgonzola crumbles.

Serve with crackers, cheese and fresh bread.
