1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground pork
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. garlic salt, divided
1/2 tsp. pepper, divided
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
4 hamburger buns, split
8 thin slices Swiss cheese
4 thin slices deli ham
4 thin sandwich pickle slices
Prepare grill for medium heat. Place a large cast iron skillet on grill grates.
In a large bowl, combine beef, pork, lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into four 1/2-inch thick patties.
Grill burgers, covered, over medium heat until a thermometer reads 160°F, 5-7 minutes on each side.
Combine mayonnaise, mustard, remaining 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; spread over cut sides of buns. Place burgers on bun bottoms; top with Swiss cheese, ham, pickles and bun tops.
Using oven mitts, carefully place preheated skillet on sandwiches. Grill sandwiches, covered, until buns
are browned and cheese is melted, 5-8 minutes.
