We’re having JT’s family over for cocktails after our RCYC luncheon. I’m making totally retro food, Deviled Eggs, Mini Easter Cupcakes and Retro Olive Nuggets. JT’s sister used to make a version of these for the cottage cocktail parties their parents held in the 80’s! JT and I talked about making them for Easter and coincidentally a Balderson Cheese booklet had an intriguing recipe, so it had to be done!

Retro Olive Nuggets

Retro Olive Nuggets (my variation, of course)

  • 1/4 lb Shredded Aged Cheddar (I used orange, but you can use white too!)
  • 1/4 cup softened unsalted butter (the original recipe asks for salted butter, but the olives and the chipotle spice I added made it salty enough!)
  • 3/4 cup all purpose gluten free flour (or all purpose flour)
  • 1 tsp zantham gum (not required if using all purpose flour)
  • 1 tsp Sexy Gourmet Chipotle Spice mix
  • about 30 small pimento stuffed olives
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds
  1. Pre heat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place all ingredients but the sesame seeds and olives into a food processor and process until it becomes a firm ball of dough.
  3. Remove from processor and rollout on a piece of parchment to about 2 -3 mm thick.
  4. Using a 5cm cookie cutter, cut circles. Wrap one olive per cut circle and roll into sesame seeds until well coated.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until sesame seeds are somewhat golden.
  6. Enjoy warm or cool. We preferred the flavour once they cooled to room temperature, you really taste the cheese and the sexy spice!
