Bacon, Bleu Cheese, and Olives combine to make a topping for your favorite white fish, making a simple, delicious, and perfect meal.
One of my favorite ways to spend the holidays is around a table laden with food, eating, chatting, and enjoying my family. As I have shared on numerous occasions, munching is a big deal for me. We love snacking, dipping, munching, and picking. Basically, I love a good charcuterie, cheese plate, or appetizer platter. Variety in textures and flavors makes me really happy.
One of the places I got for that variety is my olives! I love Mezzetta olives, they are a family run company, that sources olives from California, Italy, Spain, France, and Greece and follows family recipes to create amazing combinations and flavors.
So when I saw the bleu cheese stuffed green olives I totally couldn’t help but think how amazing and fun it would be to take bacon and bleu cheese, a classic combination, and combine it to make a topping for a fairly mild fish to add a fun twist of flavor. Honestly, I was a little worried that it would be gross. But happily I was wrong. The flavors are bold, brine-y, and salty with the bacon, and give so much flavor to the cod I used I couldn’t stop eating it.
Bacon makes everything better, but so do olives. Olives have that rich, meaty texture, and oh my goodness, so much flavor! And so when I combine that with a crunchy bacon, and some bread crumbs you get this beautifully rich, hearty, and textured crust for a flaky, tasty holiday meal.
And did I mention how easy it is to make? Under 20 minutes. That is all you need to have this on your table!
Inspiration is just a twist away!
