I don't know the origin of the
Olive Burger, but they're popular on
menus here in Michigan.
Hubby and I recently ate at the
Peanut Barrel in East Lansing
and loved the savory taste of the
olive burger sauce they put on top.
I tried to reproduce it and here's
my recipe taste-tested and approved
by my hubby:
Olive Burger Sauce
1 cup mayonaise
1 cup chopped green olives w/pimentoes
2 TBS ketchup
1 TBS mustard (I used grainy)
1/2 tea. onion powder
Measure out the olives...
And, run your knife through them
so they're chopped like this:
Whisk the ketchup and mustard
with the mayonnaise in a medium bowl.
Whisk in the onion powder.
Stir in the olives.
Refrigerate the sauce until ready to serve.
2 lbs. ground chuck
1 medium onion
Chop the onion...
Mix it into the ground chuck
and sprinkle with barbecue seasoning.
You can use any type you enjoy
such as mesquite.
Form into patties.
I like to grill over high heat to sear
the outside while
keeping the inside juicy.
Grill for 3-4 minutes on each side, but
These burgers are especially good
served with my
