This weeks sammie challenge included black olives and carrots. Olive mix and Muffuletta came to mind immediately. I wanted to do something different so why not stuffed burger with olive mix! Very tasty juicy burger! Hope you enjoy!

How To Make muffuletta stuffed burger

  • 1
    NOTE: Everglade seasoning is an all-purpose seasoning very much like Lawry's seasoning. I personally like the Everglades. If you can not find it, you can use an all-purpose seasoning of your choice.
  • 2
    Combine stuffed green olives, black olives, carrots, and capers; pour just enough olive over veggies to barely cover. Store in a jar and refrigerate for a few hours. You can add cauliflower and peppers to this mixture if you desire. NOTE: if you have olive mix on hand you can use in place of this.
  • 3
    Form 4 patties, 1/4 lb each. With the bottom of a round glass form a well in 2 of the patties. You will fill with olive mix.
  • 4
    Place a spoonful of olive mix into well of 2 patties, top with mozzarella and a slice of hard salami. Place 2nd patty on top and seal edges. Season patties with everglades, salt, and pepper.
  • 5
    In an iron skillet over a medium heat, fry 4 to 5 minutes on each side.
  • 6
    Serve on toasted bun or bread of choice with a little spicy dijon mustard, topped with lettuce and tomato.
