The Uncle 12 Burger

Recipe from: Uncle 12
Servings: 8

Theres nothing like a juicy burger right off the grill served on a toasted bun with all the fixings, "run it through the garden" I say! Lightly grilled ham on this burger is a nice addition. This is a favorite to grill because it is simple, quick and satisfying. I purchased a 6 ounce burger press for $6 and found that my burgers don't fall apart anymore and are perfect size everytime, making it quick and easy and delicious! TIP: let your grill do the work, keep the lid closed while cooking and don't mess with the burgers while their cooking unless it's time to flip or remove. Grab a beverage and your timer, and be sure to let them rest for 5 minutes to keep the juices in.

48 ounces ground chuck
1 pound deli ham, sliced (your favorite)
olive oil
8 ounces cheddar cheese, sliced, 1 ounce each
8 lettuce leaves
salt
pepper
8 tablespoons mayonnaise
8 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
16 dill pickle slices
1 large onion, sliced into 8 slices
8 slices tomatoes
8 large hamburger buns, toasted

Press ground chuck into 8 6 ounce patties. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Lighly brush both sides of your hamburgers with oil (oil the burgers, not the grill). Preheat your grill to 400 to 450°F. Place burgers on grill and flip after about 4 minutes (after crust forms on bottom of burger). Grill another 4 to 5 minutes for medium. Remove burgers from grill and top each with cheese, lightly cover using a foil tent and let rest for 5 minutes.

Place ham on grill and heat for 2 to 4 minutes until heated through, be careful not to loose your ham through the grates.

Spread ½ tablespoon mayonnaise and the mustard on all of the toasted buns (tops and bottoms). Place a burger on the bottom bun, top with ham. Place lettuce, tomato, onion and piclke slices on the top bun. Serve burgers open face with potato chips or fries on the side. Grab plenty of napkins and enjoy!
