Prepare ingredients and make sauce
Rinse cucumber and halve lengthwise; scoop out seeds with a spoon, then cut crosswise into 1-inch half-moons. Roughly chop pickles and place in a small bowl, along with ketchup, smoked paprika, 1 packet Dijon mustard, and 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar (save remainder for the next step). Stir to thoroughly combine, then set burger sauce aside until Step 6.
Make honey mustard slaw
In a large bowl, stir together whole-grain mustard, honey, remaining Dijon mustard, and remaining apple cider vinegar, then add slaw mix and cucumber and toss to thoroughly coat. Set honey mustard slaw aside until ready to serve.
Form Juicy Lucy burgers
Pat beef dry with paper towel and place in a medium bowl, then season with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper as desired. Using your hands, mix well, then form into 4 equal patties, about ½ inch thick and 4 inches wide. Top 2 patties with Cheddar cheese, dividing evenly and leaving a ½-inch border, then place remaining patties on top of cheese, pinching edges together to seal to create 2 cheese-stuffed burgers.
Slice buns open horizontally, if they arrived whole. Arrange buns cut-side down in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Toast until light golden and warmed through, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to serving plates, reserving pan for the next step.
Cook Juicy Lucy burgers
Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in pan from buns over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add burgers and sear, without flipping, until browned on bottom, about 4 minutes. Flip and continue searing for 2 minutes, then cover pan and cook until burgers are browned and medium rare and cheese centers are melted, 2 minutes more. Transfer burgers to a plate.
Plate Juicy Lucy burgers
Let burgers rest slightly, 2-3 minutes (the cheese inside will be hot!). Then, top bun bottoms with Juicy Lucy burgers, then burger sauce. Finish with bun tops. Serve with honey mustard slaw and dig in!
