The Olive Burger was made famous by Mr. Fables in Grand Rapids Michigan. Unfortunately, Mr. Fables closed their doors in 2000. I found this recipe a couple years ago online and the reviews say that is is spot on. So, Michigan I give you the first Mr. Fables Olive Burger Video on the web! Enjoy!

Mr. Fables Double Olive Burger with cheese
makes 2 burgers
1 lb 81/19 ground chuck
3 tbsp chopped green salad olives with pimento (about ten whole olives)
2 tbsp Helman’s Mayonnaise (Best Foods on the West Coast)
2 tsp olive juice
2 pieces iceberg lettuce (not the white part; must be green, and not the very-outer green part)
2 slices of tomato, large enough for one to cover the bottom bun
2 slices Kraft American cheese
2 white buns
Heat griddle or frying pan to 350 degrees. Mix the olive juice with the mayo. Split the chuck into 4-4oz VERY FLAT patties and cook them on a flattop or griddle. They were not charbroiled… Place a slice of cheese on two patties and top with the other patties, like you would two double cheeseburgers. Place buns in the microwave for ten seconds to warm (do not toast or grill the buns). Stack each bottom bun with one slice of the lettuce leaf, one tomato, a tbsp of the mayo, and a tbsp of the chopped olives. Place burgers on top of the condiments, top with the top bun, and enjoy!
3 large yellow onions, peeled
5 1/2 cups Drakes Crispy Frymix
1/2 tbsp paprika
1 qt water
Deep fryer or pan with foodservice frying oil (can be found at any foodservice warehouse or provider)
Heat deep fryer or pan with oil to 350 degrees. Slice onion into 1/4 to 1/2 inch rings, removing the centers. The rings should be at least 2 inches in diameter. Mix paprika into Drakes mix and add water. Mix well. Dip onion rings into batter and add to fryer one at a time, making sure that the rings are completely covered. The handle of a teaspoon works well for this purpose. Fry rings until golden brown.
