Crispy Sausage Stuffed Olives

It’s so fun making and eating little finger foods for holidays. This olive appetizer is great for a New Year’s party or any time of the year. It says sophisticated but also fun and tasty! The sausage middles make the appetizer a little heartier too. My family enjoyed eating these and I actually wish I had made a few more!
