Burger Week: Cuban Burgers

By the time we get to this Thursday’s recipe exchange you should have enough burger recipes to wow any backyard grilling party. Let’s get things started. And if you missed it, it all started here with 4 recipes.

Cuban Burgers

  • 1 to 1-1/2 lb lean ground beef
  • 2 tsp jerk seasoning (or more as desired)
  • salt & pepper
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • ½ lb thinly sliced deli ham
  • ½ red onion, sliced in rings
  • 4 kaiser rolls, sliced
  • Dressing:
  • ½ tsp crushed garlic
  • ½ cup salad dressing or mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp dill pickle relish

small bowl

Mix ground beef, salt, pepper & jerk and create 4 patties. Fry or grill until cooked to desired doneness.

In bowl, mix garlic, mayo, mustard & dill relish. To make burgers, spread dressing on both sides of rolls, layer burger, swiss cheese, deli ham and onion. If you want you can place cheese on burgers before removing from heat and let it melt. And I almost always grill my onions, but that’s a personal preference.

And I think we’ll add this to the Back To Basic Series, too.  This week’s recipes can be found here.
