Pulse-chop into small, coarse pieces. Place the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs into separate 4" stainless-steel hotel pans. Place the olives in the flour, shaking off any excess. Then place into the eggs, allowing the excess to drain. Then place in breadcrumbs, shaking off any excess. Place in a covered storage container in a single layer and refrigerate for future service.
