Got this one from the Food Network website.
- 1 lb ground chuck (80 percent lean) or 1 lb ground turkey (90 percent lean)
- kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1⁄2 cup mayonnaise
- 4 cloves roasted garlic, mashed
- 4 hamburger buns, split
- 1⁄4 cup Dijon mustard
- 8 thin slices swiss cheese
- 4 thin slices smoked ham
- 2 dill pickles, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick slices
- 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 aluminum 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.
A little messy to eat, but tastes as good as it sounds. :)
