I’d like to share with you these delicious meatballs with olives! What do you think?

From the oven: Meatballs with olives! If you love minced meat, ground beef or ground chicken then this is absolutely a delicious recipe for you! Those meatballs have the certain twist by adding some green olives in it! Try them! Perfect for any occasion! Easy recipe!

I’ve added to the meatballs some chopped green olives which gave them the certain twist!

I was inspired a little by a TV-show but mainly I’ve modified an Italian traditional recipe from the region Ascoli Piceno. They use to make filled green olives! Sounds delicious, uh? Well, they fill those big green olives with a meat farce, then they coat them and fry them in oil! And those little balls are so damn delicious!

My Mamma makes them, and always makes them in amount and freezes them in. So she always has these prepared for any occasion! She loves to serve them as an appetiser!

Well, I’d like to try to make them too, but it is really a challenge for me! First of all to find the right olives because they have to be big. And to make the farce out of three different types of meat, cooking and mincing, then filling the olives all one by one, frying…… you see a lot of work, isn’t it? It’s amazing what my Mamma can do!!

So I’ve modified a little those things and this is the result: meatballs with olives! I don’t fry them to cut the fat, I bake them in the oven! Great isn’t it?

Serve them on any occasion, great for buffets! Or serve them with bruschetta and a dip when your family and friends are gathering together! Have fun!

Here is the recipe!

  2. Emmi, your mom has it going on! That is a lot of work to create a delicious treat. I would love to have the time and patience that she does, but I think I will make these your way instead! I love that you can cook them in the oven, we try not to fry anything, and the twist of the green olive adds would make these a really fun holiday treat!!!
