  1. Mix the sausage with 2 tablespoons parmesan and the parsley in a bowl.
  2. Cut open the olives (do not fully cut in half). Stuff with the sausage mixture and press closed (it’s OK if the olives don’t close completely).
  3. Mix the breadcrumbs with the remaining 1/4 cup parmesan. Dredge the olives in the flour, dip in the beaten eggs, then dredge in the breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Working in batches, deep-fry the olives in 350˚ vegetable oil until golden, 4 minutes; drain on paper towels.
