Ready In:




  • Mix all ingredients.
  • To serve, spread on bottoms of hamburger buns, top with hot burger. (The irony has not escaped me that I call it a "topping" but put it on the bottom. You can put it on top or bottom!).

    Made for your Football Pool win, this recipe was a great find & a huge DH-pleaser at our house (he loves both green olives & blue cheese). We always eat burgers open-face or ditch the bun altogether in favor of a hamb steak. I made the latter, used your topping for it & combined it w/some fried leftover potatoes & a sml green salad. Like another reviewer, I also left out the salt. DH is salt-restricted, but even I felt it was not needed. Congrats on you FP win & thx for sharing this sure-to-be-used-often recipe w/us. :-)

    I made this yummy topping for my bison burger last evening. This special topping on the bison between the top and bottom of a homemade whole wheat garlic bun tasted like it was heaven sent. the rich flavors are simply delicious and now I want another burger for breakfast!. Made for: For Your Consideration tag game.

    Wonderful topping! I'm not overly fond of "classic" burger topping, and this just hit my preferences. I covered the bun with tomato slices and put the topping on top ;-)<br/>Will make this again. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for PAC Fall 2012

    DH grilled some burgers for lunch today and I made this delicious-tasting combo to go on top. I took the liberty of adding additional blue cheese as the olives were a little over-powering. I used green onions vs. regular ones. I let the topping sit for a little while and come to room temperature and it tastes great.

    I increased the blue cheese and olives, left the onion and parsley the same. I used the black pepper, but found that I didn't need any salt due to the saltiness of the olives and blue cheese. I added a bit of olive oil for moisture. I served half on a burger, and used the rest to top a wonderful grilled ribeye. I really loved the topping on the steak. Made for Football tag!
