  • Burgers:
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups olive salad, recipe follows
  • 12 slices provolone
  • 3/4 cup aioli (garlic mayonnaise)

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Brush grill with melted butter.

Season ground beef with salt, pepper and other favorite seasonings. Form into 6 patties and grill, brushing with melted butter several times as burgers cook. Grill, turning once, to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium.

On bottom half of each roll, place 1/4 cup olive salad, followed by 2 slices provolone. Top with burgers. Spread 2 tablespoons aioli on each top bun half, and then place over burgers. Serve at once with your favorite frosty cold beverage.

Note: Leftover olive salad may be used with pasta, as a dip with pita chips or in a wrap with cold cuts.
