    OMG I remember making these for your company meeting a few years back. They were a major hit!! Thank you for posting this. I am printing the recipe as I type….

    I would love to see a post about your marinated olives also….. Just a thought!!

    • They were a big hit for that event. As I remember, they GONE in a flash.

      What a good idea, I will pull out the marinated olive recipe and post it in the near future. 🙂

    I’m lazier.  Pick up a variety of olives I like at my local grocery olive bar. Many are already seasoned with garlic, pepper or whatever. I make sure to get lots of juice to prevent drying out. Preheat oven to 475. Put olives/juice in ramekin – small and deep, again to avoid drying out. Roast for 20 minutes 0r so. Voila. Like every recipe, trial and error will perfect yours to your taste. But delicious cocktail snack. Great with martinis, nuts and exquisite hard cheese.

    • That is a great tip and something I will try out. Thanks so much for stopping by. 🙂

    This is the most AMAZING recipe! It is so versatile…. great for a summer afternoon snack or an impressive appetizer with a casual elegant flair. It is by far one of my most favorite recipes you have Susan! I love it so much, that I absolutely must share it with the pinterest world! 🙂

    • You will love these. When we have company, it is something we make ahead to have on hand. Enjoy. 🙂

    This looks amazing. I’ve never tried roasted olives before, so it’s especially appealing. It’s a beautiful visual too! And we do eat with our eyes first, right?

    • They are the best every. I am officially addicted to these olives Jacquie. They look, taste and smell even better in person. Too bad I don’t have a smell-a-blog. :-)))

  • Thx for sharing this recipe for roasted olives, Susan. I love roasted olives, but have never had them with grape tomatoes in the blend! I shall bookmark this for future use!

    • The grape tomatoes make a big difference in flavor profile Doreen. I know you will become addicted to them just as I have. 🙂

  • I love olives, but have never had them roasted. I will definitely be making this. Thanks Susan.

    • Have fun with this recipe Donna. I can’t wait to hear what you think. 🙂

  • Sign me up. I LOVE olives very much. If Whole Foods was closer, I’d buy good olives more often, but selection isn’t too hot outside of Boise. One of my favorite parts of my Munich trip was sampling all of the olives I could at the Viktualienmarkt.

    • When You find yourself in my area I now know what I need to have on hand Jeri… LOL. I know you would LOVE these as much as I do. 🙂

  • I love olives, eat a lot but never roasted them. This is something that I will try in eve today. My mouth is watering to see the picture of delicious olives.
    Thank you for recipe

    • Oh, have fun making these Anna. You must let me know who they came out when you try this recipe. 🙂

  • Cheryl Therrien

    I have never been a fan of olives, but they do look delicious.

    • Aw, too bad, but I have other recipes I know you would LOVE to pieces…hee, hee. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    I love olives but I don’t think I have ever had them roasted. I will have to try this one at some point soon.

    • If you’ve never had them roasted then you are in for a treat Jon. I know this recipe will become one of your favorites. 😀

  • Rose M Griffith

    Another yummy idea for my upcoming potluck. I might have to take an appetizer and a dessert! Thanks, Susan

    • I know they would love you for it Rose. have fun with this one too. 🙂

    My dad often gets olives like these. I don’t think he’s ever roasted them though. That’s surprising since he loves grilling. Very interesting idea!

    • They are super yummy. I think your dad would appreciate these olives. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Your roasted olives sound fantastic. Deffinitely have to try your recipe.

    • They certainly are a big hit in our home. I do think it would be in yours too Catarina. 🙂

  • Susan — Do the garlic pieces cook through and soften in the oven? I assume they do and that you don’t remove them from the final dish. I adore olives and I will try it. I know it will go wonderfully with bread and cheese. Yum!

    • They do Jeannette, and they so yummy along with the olives. We usual serve these with a good crusty bread and shaved Parmesan cheese – so good together… Now I’m hungry for some. 😀

  • Debra Yearwood

    This looks so amazing. My husband and I are huge fans of olives, I think he might want to marry me all over again if I made these for him. 🙂

    • Oh, you will love this recipe Debra. It is now a staple in our home. 🙂

    I finally had the perfect party for these olives. They were a great hit and can’t wait to make them again–absolutely delicious! I’m anti-salt, so the one thing I did was rinse all the olives first. Oh and I only had fresh Rosemary and Thyme–ah, perfection!
