‘Ham’ Burger Sandwich


Who doesn’t like a classic hamburger, especially if it’s ‘homemade’.  I know I do and Chris most definitely does.  I wanted to come up with a different take on the classic hamburger.  So why not actually add ham to it.  Don’t forget to add in a dill pickle too.  Goes great with old fashion fries too.  Oh, and this isn’t just for the summer.  I’m sure we know that a hamburger is good anytime.

'Ham' Burger


  • 1 lb of Ground Beef (more of less depending on how many burgers you are making)
  •   this will make about 4
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • Slices of Swiss or White Cheddar Cheese   Feel free to use a cheese of your choice
  • Thin slices of deli ham
  • Thinly slice onions, if desired
  • 2 Dill pickles, finely diced, 
  • 2-4 Tbsp Mayo
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Stone Mustard, or brown
  • Pepper
  • Lettuce
  • Hamburger buns or Brioche buns, toasted


Homemade Fries

  • 6-10 Yellow potatoes cut into ‘sticks’ 
  • Drizzle with oil, salt and pepper, smoked paprika
  • Roast for about 45 minutes until done.



  • In a mixing bowl add the ground beef, salt and pepper and garlic powder.  Mix together and form into about 4 burgers.
  • In a small bowl add the mayo, mustard, about 2 tsp dill pickle brine, the finely diced dill pickle and pepper.  Thoroughly mix together.
  • Toast the hamburger buns.  
  • Form the ground beef into burgers.  Make a slight indentation into the center.  (this will help the burger from ‘puffing up’ in the center).  Cook the burger to your liking.  I generally like my burger well done but not too much that the burger is ‘dry’.  It all depends on the fat content of your ground beef to how long you cook it.    Place one or two pieces of cheese on top until melted.
  • Let’s make our ‘Ham’ Burger.  On the top bun, spread some of the mayo mixture.  Place the burger on the bottom bun, then place one or two pieces of ham, onions lettuce on top and then the top bun.  
  • Serve with homemade fries.

Enjoy ☺
