Green Olives and Sausage

From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at

20 very large green pitted olives packed in brine
10 oz. Italian sausage
1 egg yolk
2 tablespoons Parmigiano Reggiano
pinch nutmeg
2 eggs
1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 cups corn or grapeseed oil for frying

Rinse and soak olives and pat dry. In food processor with steel chopping blade in place, whirl the sausage (remove skins), the egg yolk, cheese, and nutmeg to a pastelike consistency. Stuff each olive. Beat the 2 eggs in small bowl. Roll the olives in flour, then in eggs, then in bread crumbs. Refrigerate at least 2 hours. Heat the oil to 375 degrees. Cook about 10 olives at a time until golden. Place on paper towels, repeat with remaining olives. Cool and serve.
