  3. In a bowl, combine the garlic, shallots, rosemary, thyme, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, sugar and pepper.
  4. Skewer the Manchego stuffed olives on to a soaked skewer (or rosemary stem), three to a piece.
  5. Once you have 8 skewers with olives, cover them in the marinade and allow them to sit for 4-8 hours.
  6. When ready to cook, grill the marinated olives over high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until the Manchego cheese starts to melt.
