Awesome and tasty burger, easy to make and great both for lunch or dinner
4 Servings

  • 1 lb. ground chuck (80 percent lean) or ground turkey (90 percent lean)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ tablespoons canola oil
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 4 cloves roasted garlic, mashed
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 8 thin slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 thin slices smoked ham
  • 2 dill pickles, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick slices

1) Divide the meat into 4 equal portions (about 6 ounces each). Form each portion loosely into a 3/4-inch-thick burger and make a deep depression in the center with your thumb. Season both sides of each burger with salt and pepper. Cook the burgers, using the oil. Remove the burgers to a plate.

Combine the mayonnaise and roasted garlic in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread both sides of each bun with the mayonnaise and the mustard. Place a slice of cheese on each bun bottom, place a burger on top, and then top the burger with a slice of ham, another slice of cheese, and some pickle slices. Cover with the bun tops.

Cook the burgers on a sandwich press or wrap the burgers in aluminium foil and cook in a hot skillet over high heat (put a heavy skillet on top of the burgers to press them) until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
