These are very good! I left out the pimentos and used sugared jalapenos instead of pickled, but otherwise kept to the recipe. Almost killed me not to grill a burger, but it was pouring outside and I thought, why not follow the recipe? Loved the method of stuffing the burger....worked perfectly in the oven....not sure if it would work on the grill....but I will be trying that out. The only problem with baking them on a sheet is the grease would run into my oven, so I used a baking dish with sides. So the accumulated fat and grease were sitting on the burgers....so I wiped it all off the bottom of the burger and then let the fat drain into a papertowel. Used Monterrey Jack with Jalapeno's for the cheese, and topped the burger with more Monterrey Jack with Jalapeno cheese and a good teaspoonful of sugared jalapenos. Wished I'd had an avocado, but didn't have one on hand....so I threw on some baby spinach and swiss chard for greenery. Fabulous! Thanks for sharing! Made for Holiday Tag.
