With a hint of marmalade and a few olives you’ll get a Spanish flair to this burger. You can certainly substitute the ground beef with lean ground chicken or turkey. Great served with a green salad.
1 pound lean ground beef
1 green onion, sliced
1/4 cup finely chopped pimento stuffed olives
4 tbsp orange marmalade
2 tsp paprika
1 clove garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup light Miracle whip
2 tsp orange marmalade
2 tsp chopped fresh cilantro (in the produce section of your supermarket)
In a large bowl, beat the egg. Add the onions, olives, marmalade, paprika, garlic, salt and pepper. Add ground beef. Mix well. Shape into patties about 3/4 inch thick. Grill on the barbeque on low to medium heat. Close lid to cook more quickly and evenly. For the topping stir together in a small bowl the miracle whip, marmalade and cilantro. When the burgers are done, dollop with a spoonful of this mayo mixture. Top with a few thin slices of red onion, lettuce and even sliced peppers if you like.
