When she was in her 80s, my mom would reminisce about olive burgers at Coney Island. I used her instructions to make one and ended up pleasing both of us. —Lorraine Hickman, Lansing, Michigan

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup sliced green olives with pimientos, drained
  • 1/4 cup Miracle Whip
  • 1 tablespoon stone-ground mustard
  • 4 hamburger buns, toasted
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese, optional
  • Bibb lettuce leaves, optional

Directions

In a large bowl, combine beef, soy sauce, Worcestershire, garlic powder and onion powder, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick patties, indenting the center slightly.
Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet; cook burgers over medium heat until a thermometer reads 160°, 4-6 minutes on each side.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine olives, Miracle Whip and mustard. Serve burgers on buns with olive mixture. If desired, top with feta cheese and lettuce. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • For mayo purists, we know Miracle Whip just won't cut it, so feel free to swap one for the other.
  • Want even more olives? Finely chop 1/2 cup and add it to the beef mixture before forming into patties.
