1/2 cup mayonnaise

3 cloves garlic, 1 finely grated and 2 chopped

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

3 tablespoons olive oil

1 small onion, chopped

1 1/2 pounds ground beef

1/2 cup slivered almonds, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup pitted green Spanish olives, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup raisins, coarsely chopped

1/2 cup tomato sauce

1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

16 potato slider rolls, split

Lettuce leaves, for topping


Mix the mayonnaise and grated garlic together in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the chopped garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Gently mix the ground beef, almonds, olives, raisins, tomato sauce, allspice, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon salt in a large bowl until just incorporated. Divide the meat mixture into 16 equal portions and form into patties.

Wipe out the skillet, add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, and heat over medium-high. Working in batches, cook the patties, flipping once until browned on each side and medium on the inside, about 2 minutes per side. Serve on the potato rolls with a smear of the garlic mayonnaise and a lettuce leaf.
