An easy snack recipe Stuffed prunes with bacon and olives – an excellent Italian starter for a picnic, party menu, or buffet table. This easy recipe I found in Sicily, where it is a trendy snack. Want a bit more spice? Use olives with a spicy marinade or red pepper flakes and a small piece of cheese for filling.
