Sundried Tomato & Olive Tapenade Burgers

2 of my fav items at Trader Joe’s are their sundried tomatoes & their olive tapenade. They have a bunch of diff tapenades (<– is that a word? … tapenii…? derrr…) and this is a pretty good one. These are both paleo & whole30-approved! That’s 3 thumbs up from me (2 thumbs + one big toe).


I felt like burgers, so I made burgers! I do’s what I wants.

**I apologize in advance for my ingredient list & measurements** (Please remember, I’m no professional cook or recipe creator. I’m a simple inner-fattie who likes to take pictures of her food on her iPhone and I don’t think about what I’m making. I throw things together on the spot. Half the time I can’t remember what I used. So.. #sorrynotsorry) :P

Beef Burgers

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 large chopstick grabs of sundried tomatoes
  • 3 medium-ish scoops of olive tapenade
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 second shake of garlic powder
  • 5 shakes of onion powder
  • drizzle of balsamic vinegar
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 spoons of ghee


  • mix together in a bowl (I used throw-away gloves bc I don’t like raw meat getting under my nails)
  • melt 2 tbsp ghee on stove (I use OMGhee)
  • shape your beef patties
  • cook on medium-ish & then flip when it browns a little

Holy damn, I suck at recipes. Someone just call the Recipe Police now so they can arrest me.
