Topped with some provolone cheese and an olive salad; and spread with lemon garlic aioli on ciabatta rolls these burgers were a huge hit. I’ll admit I was a little nervous at first serving them to our guests. I just wasn’t sure how people were going to react. I even went as far as putting out the traditional toppings just in case. I’m happy to report that everyone decided to give the muffaletta burgers a try and they also seemed happy with them.
On the side we tried a new recipe: Julia Child’s American Style Potato Salad. Creamy with just the right amount of chopped egg, dill pickle and crispy bacon; this one is a keeper. To round out our meal John grilled some corn on the cob and I whipped up some garlic basil butter as a spread.
Definitely not traditional....but utterly delicious.

July 4th BBQ-Recap
My husband and I wanted to do something just a little different this year with our 4th of July BBQ. Instead of having grilled burgers topped with the traditional lettuce tomato and ketchup on the standard burger bun; we made muffaletta burgers.
