  • 2 lbs ground chuck
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 3 cloves roasted garlic (mashed or pureed)
  • ¼ cup Dijon mustard
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese

  2. Place burgers onto the grill and grill for 3-4 minutes on each side or until burgers are fully cooked.
    In a small bowl combine garlic and mayonnaise. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. To assemble burgers – Spread both of the sides of each bun with mustard and mayonnaise. Place 1 slice of Swiss cheese on the bottom half of each bun.
  4. Place the burger on top of the cheese. Top the burger with a slice of ham and then another slice of cheese, and finally add the pickle slices. Place the bun over the pickles.
    Wrap burgers in aluminum foil and place them on the grill.
