This is another great burger from Bobby Flay.
Yes, it's as messy as it looks, but so good. Worth the extra napkins.
I also thought that if I could find some roasted pork in the deli that would be good on this also.

Pressed Cuban Style Burger

1lb ground chuck
salt and freshly ground pepper
1/3 to 1/2 C mayonnaise
3 cloves roasted garlic pureed
1/4C Dijon mustard
4 hamburger buns
4 thin slices smoked ham
8 slices swiss cheese
2 dill pickles sliced into 1/4" thick slices

Form the ground beef into 4 patties about 1/4" inch thick. Season the meat on both sides with salt and pepper. Cook in a saute or frying pan over high heat to medium rare, about 2-3 minutes.
Combine the mayonnaise and roasted garlic in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread both sides of buns with the mayonnaise and the mustard.

Place the slice of cheese on the bottom side of the bun, place the burger on top of the cheese, top the burger with a slice of ham and another slice of cheese then the pickle slices. Place the tops of the buns over the pickles and cook on a sandwich press or wrap the burgers in foil and cook in a hot skillet over high heat with a heavy skillet on top of the burger to press the sandwich. Cook until golden brown and the cheese has melted.
