sliced cubano burger recipe

The burger of the month club is back and better than ever, this time with a twist on the classic Cuban sandwich.  Enjoy!


  • 1lb ground pork
  • 12 thin slices of ham
  • ¼ pound sliced Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons course mustard
  • 2 dill pickles thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 4 Kaiser rolls, split
  • 1 brick wrapped in foil

Preheat grill to medium high. Gently form ground pork into four patties. Grill burgers to desired level of doneness, approximately 4-5 minutes per side for medium rare. Spread mustard evenly on top and bottom buns and place burger on bottom bun.  Top with cheese, ham and top bun.

Return burgers to the grill and top with the foil wrapped brick (or a heavy skillet) for approximately 3 minutes per side until the bun is nicely toasted.
