Crispy air fried blue cheese stuffed olives served a roasted garlic aioli! These make the perfect appetizer or snack for parties or game day!
I know olives are pretty much a hate it or love it thing. And I LOVE them. I eat them right out of the jar regularly. Blue cheese stuffed olives are even better, especially in a bloody mary 😉
I’m always thinking of things I can air fry (click here for my air fryer) so air frying olives seemed to be a no brainer. Better yet blue cheese stuffed olives.
Some of my other favorite air fryer recipes:
Maple bourbon brussels sprouts & squash
Crispy brussels sprouts with dijon aioli
I got a big jar of them at Trader Joe’s. However, I noticed most grocery stores carry them – even Target! You could also stuff some jumbo pitted green olives yourself with blue cheese. I’m personally all about the convenience of the pre-stuffed ones.
These go great with some creamy dipping sauce. I paired them with my roasted garlic aioli from this blog post. Good ol’ fashioned ranch would also be delicious!Print
Air Fried Blue Cheese Stuffed Olives
2 cups blue cheese stuffed olives, drained
1/2 cup all purpose or gluten-free flour
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp garlic powder
pinch of oregano
roasted garlic aioli for serving – click here for the recipe
Pat dry each olive very well.
In one bowl combine flour, oregano and garlic powder.
In a second bowl whisk the two eggs.
In a third bowl, add the panko breadcrumbs.
Take each olive and dip it in the flour mixture (make sure to fully coat) then drench in the egg, then quickly toss in the panko breadcrumbs.
Repeat with each olive and place in a lightly sprayed air fry basket.
Spray the olives with non stick spray.
Air fry at 400 degrees for 5 minutes, flip them then cook another 3-4 minutes or until crispy.
