How to Make ~ My Salami Slammer ~


  • 1Brown mushrooms & onions ( salt & pepper ) in bacon fat or butter, until tender and browning. Set aside.

    In a small bowl, mix up the mayo, mustard and dill. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • 2Make your patties - salt & pepper each side. I then got my cast iron skillet pretty hot and seared the burgers in about 1 tablespoon bacon grease. ( GOOD FLAVOR ). After about 5 minutes, flip to other side and cook another 5 minutes.
  • 3I then placed the skillet under my broiler 2nd notch down from flame. Continue broiling until burger is cooked to your desired preference. Add a slice of cheese to each burger and broil until melted.
  • 4In the mean time, butter the top side of bread or bun and place 2 slices of swiss cheese on the bottom half of bread. Place on a broiler pan and broil until turning golden and cheese is melted.
  • 5In the same pan as you cooked the mushrooms and onions brown the ham and salami.
  • 6Burgers should be done by now.

    To build the burger, I spread about 1 tablespoon of sauce on both the top and bottom of Ciabatta.
  • 7Add 2 slices of fried ham, the burger, 1/2 the mushrooms and onions, 2 slices browned salami. Add the top, can cut in half if prefer, is quite sloppy, but oh so good! Make sure you have a napkin handy. :)
