Each episode of hit cartoon Bob's Burgers features a different punny burger of the day. To celebrate the release of the television show's new cookbook, we share a recipe inspired by the Belcher family's oldest child, Tina.

Makes 4 burgers

An all-beef patty topped with Parmesan and a spicy hearts of palm and artichoke tapenade. It's like a tap(enade) dance in your mouth! Ha cha cha!

450g ground beef
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 can sliced hearts of palm
1 can artichoke hearts
2 cloves garlic
10 pitted green olives
8 pitted kalamata olives
1 Serrano chili
5 leaves fresh basil
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
4 buns

1. Form 4 patties, season both sides with salt and pepper, and cook them as you normally would. Before finish, pile about 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese onto each burger and cover or tent to help it melt.

2. Put everything else (except the buns) into a food processor and pulse until the mixture is chunky but spreadable. Then put Chunky But Spreadable on a bumper sticker and watch the money come rolling in.

3. Toast the buns and build your burger: bottom bun, cheeseburger, tapenade, top bun.
