Pimento Cheeseburgers

I love grilling, grilled food, grill marks....the list could go on and on.... I came across this recipe for Pimento Cheeseburgers at Sidewalk Shoes. I have not eaten a lot of pimento cheese spread in Wisconsin (I am told it is more popular in the south?), but I absolutely loved the flavors of this burger with the pimento cheese. The cheese is nice and sharp and the pimentos and mayo give a nice tang when heated on the grill. It is not pictured here, but I topped mine with a few sliced pickles for even more tang! Yum! My husband also went crazy for this burger, and gobbled his up in lightning speed. I like this recipe because it is different than the everyday burger, but still has the yummy cheese to make it a great summer comfort food!


2 lbs ground beef
salt and pepper, to taste

Pimento Cheese
1 cup sharp Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 oz. cream cheese
Salt and cayenne pepper, to taste
1 jar sliced pimentos, drained (2 oz)


Preheat grill to medium high.

In a food processor, combine the cheese, mayo, cream cheese and seasonings, and process until smooth. Add the pimentos and pulse to combine.

Shape the ground beef into 4-6 (depending on how big of a burger you want)  patties and season with salt and pepper.

Grill burgers on an oiled grate for 4 minutes, then flip them over and cook for 2 more minutes. Top with about 1/6 of the pimento cheese and grill for 2 more minutes
