My mom would make these Cuban burgers when we would visit her in Florida. They are a take on the real Cuban sandwich. My kids love them. My boys could eat two of these monsters in one sitting. —Marina Castle Kelley, Canyon Country, California

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 4 hamburger buns, split
  • 8 thin slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 thin slices deli ham
  • 4 thin sandwich pickle slices

Directions

  1. Prepare grill for medium heat. Place a large cast-iron skillet on grill grates.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beef, pork, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-in.-thick patties. Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat until a thermometer reads 160°, 5-7 minutes on each side.
  3. Combine mayonnaise, mustard, remaining 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; spread over cut sides of buns. Place burgers on bun bottoms; top with Swiss cheese, ham, pickles and bun tops. Using oven mitts, carefully place preheated skillet on sandwiches. Grill sandwiches, covered, until buns are browned and cheese is melted, 5-8 minutes.
