One of my favorite burgers, but since my life long companion does not care for olives, I only make them when she is absent. Is it too much to ask of the woman of your dreams to join you in an occasional olive burger? I think not. Grounds for divorce after 50 years of marriage? You tell me. —MTDavids

Kosher salt and black pepper

In This Recipe
Coarsely mince olives. Gently mix 1/2 of the olives with the meat. Reserve remainder for sauce.
Form into 3 patties. Place a depression in the middle of each using your thumb.
Season each patty with salt and pepper to taste. Place in a skillet (or on a grill) over medium heat and cook to desired doneness (good burger meat should not be overcooked).
For the sauce, mix remaining olive, mustard, onion, ketchup, and mayo in a small bowl and taste. Adjust as desired
Lightly coat bun faces with mayo and lightly toast. Top with a burger and 1/3 of the olive mixture.
