Step 1

In a bowl combine beef, garlic powder, cumin, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and ground black pepper. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.

For a charcoal grill, place patties on rack of uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 14 to 18 minutes or until meat is done (160 degree F), turning once halfway through grilling.

Top each with a slice of ham and cheese.

Step 4

Cover; grill 30 seconds more or just until cheese begins to melt.
