How about another great Tailgating recipe? No sandwich says Creole-Italian like a Muffuletta. Here is a twist on that classic salad.

3 pounds Ground Beef

Creole Seasoning to taste

12 “Slider” Mini Buns, I prefer King’s Hawaiian

12 slices Provolone Cheese, cut in half

Prepared Olive Salad mix, bottled or homemade

Prepare a grill for indirect cooking.

In a medium bowl, season ground beef with Creole Seasoning. Form into 12 small patties. Grill to doneness, turning once on each side, 4 minutes per side for medium.

Slice and grill Buns. On bottom half of each bun, place a little olive salad, top with burger, followed by 2 small slices of provolone cheese, more olive salad and then the top half of bun.


Good Cooking, Good Eating and Good Living!!!



I lived in New Orleans, since birth, until Hurricane Katrina. I now live in Arkansas with my wife and our spoiled-rotten dog. I have been cooking since I was 8. My first cookbook, You can't keep New Orleans out of the cook, is now available at publishamerica.net and most online bookstores. It is also available on Kindle and Nook.
