Cuban Burgers

I really liked these burgers! The roasted garlic and dijon mustard was fantastic. My kind of burger! They were super filling with the extra meat and cheese, so split one with someone or gear up with a huge appetite!! :)
Recipe from: Sounding My Barbaric Gulp!

1 pound ground hamburger
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 head roasted garlic, mashed
4 hamburger buns, split (I used Ciabotta Bread and it was great!)
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
8 thin slices Swiss cheese
4 thin slices smoked ham
4 bread and butter pickles, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick slices

Divide the meat into 4 equal portions (about 6 ounces each). Form each portion into a burger. Season both sides of each burger with salt and pepper. Remove the burgers to a plate when they are done.

Meanwhile, combine the mayonnaise & roasted garlic in a small bowl and season with salt & pepper to taste.

To assemble, spread the bottom buns with mayonnaise & the top buns with mustard. Begin stacking the burgers on the bottom buns with a slice of cheese, a burger, a slice of ham, another slice of cheese, and some pickles. Cover with the bun tops. (Put it together however you want to.)

I skipped this last step, but wish I had done it, but it was still good...Cook the burgers on a panini press or wrap the burgers in aluminum foil & cook in a hot skillet over high heat (put a heavy skillet on top of the burgers to press them) until golden brown and the cheese has melted, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
