Sandwich Essentials: Hummus Burger on Toast

Andy Anderson !


This is a fun sandwich that I came up with on a whim yesterday. The condiments are not mayo, not mustard, not ketchup… just hummus. I served it open-faced on a piece of toasted cracked wheat bread, slathered with hummus, some lettuce, and sliced tomatoes.

Not sure what I expected, but it was really yummy. Everyone gave it two thumbs up.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Sandwich Essentials: Hummus Burger on Toast


  2. You will need a small skillet to make this recipe.
  3. Here is the hummus I used; however, any good hummus will work:

  4. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  5. Add the olives and relish to the ground beef and gently mix to combine.

    Then place in a cold skillet, put it on the stovetop, set the heat to medium, and sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper.
  6. After the bottom begins to brown (3 – 4 minutes), flip, sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper, and cook an additional 3 – 4 minutes.

    Note: I like mine a bit on the rare side, so I cut those times in half.
  8. Toast the bread, and slather with 2 tablespoons of the hummus. Then toss the tomatoes with the remaining hummus. Note: You might need a bit more hummus, but that is okay because hummus is a good thing.

    Place the lettuce on the toast, add the burger, and top with the hummus-tossed tomatoes.

  9. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
