I just came across this today. The original recipe uses garlic stuffed olives but I am sure you could use any large olive I think one stuffed with a bit of blue cheese would be good but pimento would be good as well.  And I think I have seen almond stuffed olives.  Any way try these:
Vampire-Away Garlic Bites
1 Can Crescent rolls or there is a seamless dough sold in the same area of the case.
2 Jars, 5 ounces each garlic stuffed olives. Or other as you choose.
   (Drain and dry on towels.)
2 Tb milk
2 Tb sesame seeds
Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Unroll dough, cut into 4 rectangles.  Cut each rectangle lengthwise into 4 strips.  Cut strips in half crosswise to make 32 dough strips.

Place 1 olive on each strip.  Wrap dough strip around olive.  Roll between your hands until olive is completely covered in dough.  Place on cookie sheet.  Brush top with milk; sprinkle sesame seeds on top of each.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Here is another that is pretty good but I think it could use more cheese and sausage.

Sausage Balls
3 Cups Bisquick
2 Cups grated Cheddar cheese
1 Pound ground sausage, hot or mild.  I like the hot.
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together.  If not moist enough add a little water.  Form mixture into 1 inch balls.
Bake for 15 minutes.  Drain on paper towels.  Serve warm. (I have served at room temp.) If possible they would keep well in a crock pot.
They freeze well before or after baking.

Hi Carol --- could you take something that needs last minute baking or heating or does it need to be ready to go?

These are better baked fresh but they are so good .......
You could prepare them the day before -- then bake the night before or morning of.

AMERICAN CHEESE SANDWICHES

1/2 lb American cheese
1/2 lb bacon, fried, drained and crumbled
2 heaping Tblsp black, ripe olives
2 heaping Tblsp chopped or shredded onions
2/3 cup (approximately) Mayo - just enough to moisten stuff
1 doz dollar rolls -- those small white rolls you can buy anywhere - cut in half
Mix everything and spread on the dollar roll halves. 
Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes - until cheese is bubbly and starting to brown a bit.

Flavor of this improves if you make the cheese  stuff  a day ahead ...  Spread it on the
dollar roll halves, then bake.

One of my family's favorites is roll-ups.  All you need is large flour tortillas, cream cheese, powdered ranch dressing, drained artichoke hearts, pimento strips and a package of any thin sliced meat.  I have used chicken, turkey, ham or corned beef.  You can also add sliced black olives if you want.  

 Just mix the cream cheese and salad dressing, spread on tortillas, then layer with artichoke hearts, pimento strips and meat.  Roll tightly and wrap in plastic wrap.  You can make these ahead of time and just slice into one inch pieces the night before.  They look very pretty on a plate and no baking required.

Another roll-up, no cooking required, is to simply spread cream cheese on a slice of ham.  Add a pear of dill pickle and roll up.  Cut into maybe 1/2" slices. 
Those are so good but so old too........... that's been around for years....

Usually a selection of vegetables with a dip.  At least that is what I have heard them called.  (Fancy name for Rabbit food...to keep some people happy while they sneak the cookies and chocolate)

I spread a tortilla with cream cheese, lay lunch meat on top (Ham) and roll into a log shape and cut into 1/2 inch slice that I lay on a dish then I top with a olive.  Sometimes I stick a toothpick through the side to hold my circles together.

A block of cream cheese with pepper jelly over it and some giood crackers is easy.  Take the cream cheese and the jar of jelly and assemble on site.

Mary Ann -- that's one of my favorites.  I wish I could find some good commercial pepper jelly ..... I'd keep that in my 'fridge here at home to eat as a snack.

Hi Mary Ann I made pepper jelly for that reason and it is great.Nancy  I don't know if there any Amish in your area,that is where I found it first and liked it so I made my own.
