Default The Muffuletta Burger

I was given some burgers from We Got Burgers to try out. I've given most of them a try over the past couple of months. They were all good.

But I was a bit baffled by the Salami Burger. I really had no idea what to do with it. What traditional salami sandwich would translate to BBQ. I've done a lot of searching on the internet for ideas.

I've always wanted to try a real Muffuletta and since they have salami in them I figured this would be the direction to go. Let me say this up front. I know this isn't really all that close to a muffuletta but it's close enough for burger work.

Bought I really nice fresh olive mix from the local specialty market. Chopped it coursely with some piquillo peppers, fresh italian parsley and fresh oregano. Mixed it with a little dijon mustard and mayo.

The burger patties are 1/2 pound each, so I sliced them in half and grilled them up. Topped on with a good portion of a sharp Irish White Cheddar. Made up the burger on a chibatta roll and topped with the Olive Salad.

The saltiness of the olives was amazing with the salami burger...

Nice option for the salami burger, way to work with the raw materials, I really like the taste and texture of the salami burger. I went plain burger with mine though.

I've had muffuletta's in La. and I've never ever cared for the olive salad...ever...never, and I love all olives. Dang sure like the sandwich otherwise though. Anyway, what you got going on there surely looks good and I'd give it a go. What did the meat taste like naked? They have some crazy mixes for sure.

That's like saying the Bananas Foster at Brennan's was pretty good after you washed off all that brown gook, or the Oysters Rockefeller at Antoine's was pretty good after you scraped off the spinach!!!

BBQ Grail--if you ever go through Williams, CA stop at Granzella's and order a Muffaletta Sandwich--they are awesome. I have seen premade Muffaletta mix in jars at Raleys---I think that it is a Messetti product. Here in Oroville-Ron's Drive In makes a "King Olive Burger" which is similar to your creation---if a person likes green olives--they will enjoy a Muffaletta

The muffaleta at Granzella's is excellent. Of course, the burger is too. I find that the olive mix varies greatly from place to place and some just over-dress. It isn't the same without the olive mix.
