Cuban Burgers

Time for another Secret Recipe Club reveal. This month I was assigned Ashley's blog Cheese Curd In Paradise. Ashley is from Wisconsin and has a lot of really great recipes on her blog, so many that I couldn't decide what to make, so I sent Randal a list of possible recipes and let him decide which one.  He finally decided on the Cuban Burger which was my top choice also. 

I do have to give credit for this post to my husband because he was the one that actually made these burgers (he does all the grilling!) and I have to say that he made a great burger.  We both really enjoyed these, we love Cuban sandwiches and these really do taste like them in burger form.

1 1/2 lb ground pork
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp lime zest
1 1/2 tsp lime juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
4 slices swiss cheese
4 slices ham
Yellow mustard 
Hamburger buns (we used onion rolls)
Mix the pork, garlic, oregano, cumin, salt, pepper, lime zest and juice together. Form pork mixture into 4 patties, grill burgers about 6 minutes per side, until cooked through, top with the ham and cheese slices, and place the rolls split side down on the grill for a few minutes, until the cheese has melted on the burgers.  Place the burgers onto the rolls, top with pickles, mayo and mustard.
