Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 20 min.

I created this recipe one day after wondering why chicken was often stuffed with ham and cheese but not other meats. I tried it with hamburger and added seasoned bread crumbs for just the right touch. -Lee Deneau, Lansing, Michigan


  • 1/2 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 thin slice fully cooked ham, halved
  • 2 slices process American cheese, halved
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 hamburger buns, split
  • Lettuce leaves and red onion and tomato slices, optional


  1. Shape beef into four thin patties. Place a half slice of ham and two half slices of cheese on two patties. Top with remaining patties; pinch edges to seal. Coat both sides of burgers with bread crumbs.
  2. In a large skillet, cook burgers in oil for 4-5 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink. Serve on buns with lettuce, onion and tomato if desired.
