Deli Burgers

Six ingredients are all you need to prepare these delicious, delectable deli burgers.


  • 1 pound Ground Beef (93% lean or leaner)
  • 8 ounces deli Corned Beef, coarsely chopped
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 ounces dill pickle slices
  • 6 slices rye bread, toasted


  1. Combine Ground Beef and Corned Beef, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Lightly shape into six 1/2-inch thick patties.

  2. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 7 to 9 minutes) until instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally. Evenly top with cheese during last minute of grilling. About 4 minutes before burgers are done, place bread on grid; grill until lightly toasted, turning once.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed ground beef. Ground beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of ground beef doneness.
  3. Spread mustard over each slice of rye bread and cut in half. Place burger on one side of bread; top with pickles. Close sandwiches.

    Cook's Tip: Reduced-fat Swiss cheese may be substituted in this recipe.

    Russian dressing may be substituted for mustard.
  • Test Kitchen Tips Make sure your grill is clean (to prevent flare-ups) and the rack is well-oiled (to prevent sticking).
